Badges Assembly Not Set to Build


The latest source code check in (6/6/2013) did not build for me. I had to do this to get it to build:
  • Remove the references to System.Web.Helpers and System.Web.WebPages in MVCForum.Website.csproj and then add them back.
  • Use Configuration Manager at the solution level to enable the Build option for the Badges project. Without this, the Badges.dll is not created and the web site project that references it does not build.
Note that the Events project is also not set to build, but that doesn't prevent the solution from building.

I see that you mention the Badges.dll problem in your installation video, so the building of that project appears to be disabled on purpose. Refreshing the two aforementioned System.Web references allowed the solution to build but it now doesn't run due to their differing version numbers ( vs. in the main web.config. Incrementing the numbers results in this runtime error:

Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Not sure what to do next.
