Here is my screen recording. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ylvho7jI_k
Please skip from 2:00 to 2:40 where I restarted my VM.
Can you please check whether you have v4.0 folder under C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework. If you have it, can you please rename it to something else and re-run 'pac pcf push' command?
If it is still working, can you please check line 57 in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\MSBuild\Current\Bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets whether it is referencing to v4.6.2?
In my case, I temporarily solve the issue either
1. by cloning v4.6.2 folder under C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework to v4.0
2. by changing TargerFrameworkVersion from v4.0 to v4.6.2 in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\MSBuild\Current\Bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets
As you can see in my screen recording, I can successfully build using 'msbuild' only with .net v4.6.2.
Shouldn't 'pac pcf push' work with v4.6.2 as well?
Love the push feature great time saver and been using since a week, only issue(feedback) I am facing is that after one solution push I have wait few minutes for next push, It gives error :
"The process cannot access the file '.path\obj\PowerAppsTools_ikl' because it is being used by another process. "
@Sheb , We are aware of this issue and it has been fixed. Unfortunately you will have to wait until the next update which will take place at the end of September. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I built a PCF and packaged with both solution types (managed.zip and unmanaged.zip).
Import the unmanaged into a DEV instance, then exported as managed solution (exported_managed.zip) to get ready to import into downstream instances (QA/UAT/PRD).
When I unpack the managed.zip and exported_managed.zip, I expect them to be similar, and both should be able to be imported into new environments.
However that's not the case. It looks like the PCF build produced zip added publisher prefix (which is new in Aug tooling) to the component name, but the export one does not, causing import mismatch and fail. Please see the file compare between the two solution.xml.
So will the tooling stop adding prefix, or the CRM export will add prefix in the future?
We appologize for the issue you are experiencing! We are aware of this behavior and are working on a fix that will address the export issue. The prefix is there to ensure uniqueness of each component thus its essential that it is added.
i have a question...
But .net framework 4.6.2 is mandatory? Is not possible to use 4.7.2, because in my machine win20 + visual studio 2017 + .net framework 4.7.2 I receive this error
" C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\MSBuild\15.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targe
ts(1179,5): error MSB3644: The reference assemblies for framework ".NETFramework,Version=v4.6.2" were not found. To res
olve this, install the SDK or Targeting Pack for this framework version or retarget your application to a version of th
e framework for which you have the SDK or Targeting Pack installed. Note that assemblies will be resolved from the Glob
al Assembly Cache (GAC) and will be used in place of reference assemblies. Therefore your assembly may not be correctly
targeted for the framework you intend. [C:\Project\PCF\LinearComponent\Solution\Solution.cdsproj]"
@peterv333 A new but related issue regarding the export tool not adding prefix:
If a Dynamics solution used one of the PCF controls created after the August tooling update (where prefix were added), the exported solution can NOT be imported into a different environment. It gave a vague error of "An error has occurred. Try this action again. If the problem continues, check the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Community for solutions or contact your organization's Microsoft Dynamics 365 Administrator. Finally, you can contact Microsoft Support"
In this case, unlike the PCF solution itself, there is no built tool to create a zip file to use. What we found out is that "customization.xml" in the exported zip file stripped the prefix out, but the "solution.xml" actually kept the prefix.
The workaround is to adding the prefix back to <customControl formFactor="2" name="prefix_NameSpace.PCFControl">
in the customization.xml manually and zip it back.
So looks like a fix is really needed in the export code to accomodate the newly introduced prefix.
Reopen responsibly, monitor intelligently, and protect continuously with solutions for a safer work environment.
