No outputs for project problem when using MSBuild

Hey guys,
I have a strange problem.
I have a solution that can build a installer file just fine from Visual Studio ! But when try do the same from MSBuild it comes with a "No outputs for project" error

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\InstallShield\2013Limited\InstallShield.targets(
108,3): error : No outputs for project "IP.MVC" were provided, but the installa
tion project references "IP.MVC.Built". [E:\IP\Sitecore\Ekstern\EksternFilesIns
tallerIS\EksternFilesInstallerIS.isproj]

I have found a very old thread that says it can be caused by the dot in the project name.

My projects are all named but the company and project ex. IP.MVC & IP.Form and so on.

I'm using Visual Studio 2013, and have just downloaded latest InstallShield LE

Please advise !!


Thanks
Jan

Re: No outputs for project problem when using MSBuild

Hi Jan,

Are you trying to build the .isproj or the .sln?

I tried both. Spend so many hours, so I gave up for now !
