Sandcastle Help File Builder doesn't run from a mapped drive on Windows 7 (even if it is mapped to a local path). It runs fine on a Windows 7 local drive.
Additional plugins cannot be located within the GUI and the build itself will not run outside the UI too.
The same files work works perfectly well on Windows XP from a mapped drive.
Error message is as follows:
X:\Build\Environment\Help\SandcastleHelpFileBuilder\SandcastleHelpFileBuilder.targets(23,5): error MSB4062: The "SandcastleBuilder.Utils.MSBuild.BuildHelp" task could not be loaded from the assembly X:\Build\Scripts\MsBuild\..\..\Environment\Help\SandcastleHelpFileBuilder\SandcastleBuilder.Utils.dll.
Request failed. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, and that the assembly and all its dependencies are available.
Sandcastle Help File Builder is not installed and I am passing SHFBROOT as a parameter (in the example above).
I suspect it can be solved with a configuration or system setting rather than a code change seeing as the code works on XP. Can anyone help?
