I have a UWP application that I have been making changes to over the last several days. The changes I have made are all in the back-end projects and nothing has changed in the UWP project. Suddenly though this morning when I try to build I am getting several errors in the UWP file of the format:
'Could not copy the file "obj\x86\Debut\.xbf" because it was not found''
Additionally, I am getting a message that the UWP project "cannot resolve Assembly or Windows Meta file..." and a reference to a project that the UWP project does NOT reference, but is referenced by the back-end projects. (The referenced project is a Windows Framework 4.5.2 project, but that also hasn't changed since I was able to build and run the UWP.)
I have tried:
- Cleaning and rebuilding the entire solution
- Cleaning the solution, closing VS, deleting the UWP obj folder contents, restarting VS and rebuilding
- Cleaning and rebuilding only the UWP
Due to my development management environment, I am stuck with VS 2017, so upgrading is NOT an option as a solution.
Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing this?
