I am trying to use FiXML. I have installed using the stable installer and added the <import/> and <usefixml/> to csproj.

I'm getting the following error message on build:

The target "RequiresXtensiveMSBuildTasks" does not exist in the project.


I added the missing target to my csproj file and it did help. Pre project built succesfully for the first time and the XML transformation did work. However any subsequent attempt fails with error "Unable to copy file "obj\Debug\dotNetRDF.dll" to "bin\Debug\dotNetRDF.dll". The process cannot access the file 'bin\Debug\dotNetRDF.dll' because it is being used by another process.".


The file lock seems to be because the FiXml task loads the output assembly into AppDomaind to rewrite the XML comments. I found a solution on StackOverflow which helps but now I've got another issue. A Clean+Build or Rebuild works fine every time but building after the first build has suceeded fails with error "Xtensive.MSBuildTasks.DocumentNotFoundException: File 'blah blah.XML' doesn't exist.". I don't get this. The XML file is in place so where does that come from?

Thanks, Tom

One Answer:

Hello Tomasz,

unfortunately FiXml is deprecated and we don't provide support for it.

We have plans for releasing its sources for further improvements by community.

Too bad. Is there any worthy alternative?
