Thanks for your help, I was able to make some changes to the web part, compile it and deploy it using the MSBuild although I got couple of error messages for duplicate declaration of some properties which I had to comment them out and built was successful
is that expected?
for example I was getting this error message:
Dll\Properties\FramesetResources.Designer.cs(25,20): error CS0101: The namespac
e 'Resources' already contains a definition for 'FramesetResources' [C:\Temp\Sh
then i commented out below section in "SlkDll.csproj" under ROOT\sl\dll\ as it was duplicated and it built successfully
Please confirm if my approach is acceptable
