Well... I got the same error myself using version 1.0.799 I think it is. We have an LMS that we've created which is built off this version. Our problem is that we need to increase the size limitations on a certain storage variable in the source to allow for larger courses to be uploaded to our LMS. Problem is, I can't get the source that I downloaded from CodePlex to work. I bring up the 'Learning Compoments' solution in Visual Studio 2008 and try to build it, I get the same error you do. I was finally able to get around that by removing some of the files from the solution (this would obviously not be recommended, nor do I believe it would fix anything for you other than to remove the error you're currently getting). In any case, after I removed these files, it would at least generate some error output now on a build command... 598 BUILD ERRORS!!! When I do a search in Google for 'SharePoint SLK source build errors', a link to your post is about all I find that even looks like it's in the same ballpark as I am with what's going on for me.

Conclusion: SharePoint is a horrible attempt at this type of application and should be compared to other Microsoft flukes such as Windows ME or Vista! But EVERYBODY's usin' it, so I have to also I guess. Any help would be appreciated!

Maybe somebody with more experience in this less than adequate system might shed some light on how I might get this source code to actually build.


And before anybody answers, upgrading to a different version of the SLK is NOT presently an option. Thank you in advance!

TareqSamy, use msbuild for that version.
