Build failure. New to Sandcastle

When trying to create a New Project from Visual Studio, upon build I get an immediate error: "BUILD FAILED: Unable to find XML comments in C:\<path to the first project>. Its apparently not looking in /bin/debug where the XML files are located.


After opening the XML files directly, the build seems to go OK until the very end when I get "BUILD FAILED: Unexpected error in last build step. See output above for details."

Any obvious problem here?

Thanks,

Douglas

You can edit the assembly and XML comment file locations by selecting the assembly in the Assemblies to Document list and clicking the Edit button. You can then point the paths to the right locations. The second error is caused by a dependent assembly that it cannot find automatically. Add such assemblies to the project's Dependencies property. Please see the Getting Started and FAQ topics in the help file as they cover common issues like this.

Thanks.

Does this mean there is no way to change this once for all? I have to edit the path for each of my dozens of assemblies?!

Each has to be edited individually.
