"Indirect dependency" error when building modified XML Export Connector

Article # 3037982 - Page views: 130


When attempting to build a customized Export Connector, we are seeing the following error:

The primary reference "C:\GIT\fasttrackrtw\XML Export Connector\Utility\bin\Release\Kofax.Xml.Export.Utility.dll" could not be resolved because it has an indirect dependency on the .NET Framework assembly "mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" which has a higher version "" than the version "" in the current target framework.


This is due to some referenced components or projects in the solution are targeting .NET Framework 2 while others are targeting .NET Framework 4.


Make sure that all referenced dlls and included projects in the solution are targeting the same .NET Framework.
