Description brian.j.suh 2017-08-11 03:45:31 UTC
Using msbuild bundled with the OS X installer for mono, I cannot build older non-.NET Core ASP.NET MVC projects because AppConfig is unset and msbuild looks for app.config instead of Web.config. I can workaround this by adding <AppConfig>Web.config</AppConfig> into a <PropertyGroup> within my project file.
