Running Under VS2013

Jan 7, 2014 at 1:18 PM
The location for several of the project references have changed for VS2013 so you will need to update the following references, otherwise your project will not build:


For VS2013 they are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\110\DAC\bin\

Hi Nigel, those should be the same as the references currently in the project - what were they when you downloaded it? I'd be interested to know about any issues and work on resolving them. Thanks!

Hi Kevin,
The <HintPath> setting in the .proj file is a relative path. I installed on my D: drive dev folder which caused the issue. I have just tried installing on the C: drive and the issue does not occur. You could add a readme with things like this as your target demographic of SQL developers may not be super clued up on fixing references in C# projects.

I hope you continue to add to the project and develop the tutorials as they have done a great job of opening my eyes to the possibilities that dacpacs might hold for SQL development and deployment

OK, I've updated the hint paths so that they are fully qualified (C:\Program Files (x86)...) rather than relative. Thanks for raising this and let me know if you run into any other issues!
