I just finished with the installation of NuGetter on my Build Server.
The Build Controller has a "CustomActivitiesStorage" where the NuGetter's dll reside.
On my laptop, i registered the "TfsBuild.NuGetter.Activities.dll" file so that i can use it with the Process Template editor in VS 2012. On my laptop, everything load just fine. I can add activities to the template and even checkin afterward.
What's weird is that, if i open the "NuGetterMultiPkgBuildTemplate20.xaml" file on the VS 2012 of the Build Server, i get this error:
* Workflow Designer encountered problems with your document
Something about invoking the constructor on type "'TfsBuild.NuGetter.Activities.NuGetterProcess".
I made a test on the Build Server:
1- when i register the dll in the gac manually.
- Got the error
2- when i unregister the dll in the gac and then try to open the template again.
- The template open with a red activity that could no load.
So, it's obvious that i need to register the dll in the GAC for the Build Server if i want to be able to edit the xaml template on it.
But, on the Build Server, i can't load the template in VS..
I already use another template activity called "VersioningBuildTemplate20.xaml" which use a custom activity called "TfsBuild.Versioning.Activities".
This template loads ok on the Build Server and i seem to be able to drag-n-drop the NuGetter activity on this template..
Any ideas ?
