Bamboo: Building ASP.NET Core Project with VS2015

I have some trouble to setup a task to build a ASP.NET Core project with VS2015. All necessary tools are installed on the build server and I can compile the project using the IDE on the build server.

My task consists of:

  • Source Code Checkout
  • Command Line: nuget restore
  • Visual Studio (/build Release)

When I execute the plan, it simply hangs when starting the compiler:

C:\bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir\ARES-ARES-WEB>call "C:\Program 
Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" x86


Does anybody know the reason for this behaviour?

Try building from a command line task instead of a visual studio task.

I am now using the following tasks:

  • Command Line: nuget restore
  • Command Line: dotnet restore
  • msbuild

This way I can compile the project.

If I compile the project on the build server using "msbuild" in a command line window, the "dotnet restore" step is not necessary. Strange.
