Windows build fails on Ionic


#1

Hi, I’m working on an Ionic 3 project. When I try to take windows Build, I’m getting the following error message

D:\Project_Sample\platforms\windows\CordovaApp.Windows10.jsproj(61,5): error MSB4019: The imported project “C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\V
isualStudio\v14.0\Microsoft.VisualStudio…Default.props” was not found. Confirm that the path in the declaration is correct, and that the
file exists on disk.
Error: C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\bin\msbuild.exe: Command failed with exit code 1

I’ve already installed Visual Studio 2017, Build tools and Windows SDK.

In the error it is showing the MSBuild version as v14.0, but in my system I can able to find only version 15.0. Is there any possibilities to change the version in my project?

Pretty clear what to do.

I downloaded visual studio 2015 community and installed. But now I got a new error as below

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v14.0\AppxPackage\Microsoft.AppXPackage.Targets(912,5): error APPX1639: File ‘MakePri.exe’ no
t found. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=798187 for more information.

PX0002: Task ‘SignAppxPackage’ failed. The specified executable is not a valid application for this OS platform.

What to do with this error?

Hi,

After installed visual studio community, I’ve faced some issues like Makepri.exe not found, Makeappx.exe not found etc… After fixing all the things, finally I’m facing an error like the following. I’m clueless that what it is. Please suggest a way to do
