We are currently working on generating help documentation for our product. We are using SandCastle version 2.7 and SandCastle Help file Builder v 188.8.131.52.
We have configured "Assembly Binding Redirection" for one of the dependent assemblies that we reference from a dependent team.
We have found that even wit hthe "Assembly Binding Redirect" present the sandcastle help file builder is complaining with error BE0043.
A snnipet of the LastBuild.log is given below (it will show the redirection old and new version:
