I'm getting this error: I looking at the SandcastleBuilder.Components.config file and it has a tabSize for the Code Block Component!

BUILDASSEMBLER : error : BuildAssembler: An error occured while initializing the build component 'SandcastleBuilder.Components.CodeBlockComponent' in the component assembly 'C:\Program Files\EWSoftware\Sandcastle Help File Builder\SandcastleBuilder.Components.dll'. The error message and stack trace follows: System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: You must specify an integer value for the 'tabSize' attribute.

Check your project's ComponentConfigurations property.  If there is a copy of the code block component in the right-hand list, delete it, re-add it, and reconfigure it.  It may have an out of date set of configuration information.

Now I am getting this error:

It looks like you might be running into a bug in the ResolveReferenceLinks2 Sandcastle component.  Are you using the latest release of Sandcastle (May 2008) and SHFB (1.7.0.0 or 1.8.0.2 Beta)?  If not, try upgrading to see if that fixes the issue.  You might try to create a small test project using a simple Hello World type of assembly to see if you get the same results.  Since it's occuring during the initialization of the component, it's possible some of the Sandcastle data files that it uses are corrupt somehow.  The test project would confirm that or rule it out.  If it does fail, try uninstalling and reinstalling Sandcastle to see if it resolves the issue.  If not, can you e-mail me the failing project so that I can look into it to see if I can find the cause?  My e-mail address is in the About box in the GUI and in the footer of the pages in the help file.

Ok. I will do it again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled SandCastle twice already. I will let you know.

It definitely looks like a problem with Sandcastle's files from the Data\Reflection folder.  The only possibility is that after uninstalling, it isn't removing something and the older files are hanging around preventing the new files from being installed.  If you've got Vista or Windows 7, there's a chance it may be virtualizing the files if you've made changes.  Those don't always go away after uninstalling.  Physically checking to be sure the Sandcastle folder is gone as well as where it may have virtualized the files before installing might be worth a try.  See the tail end of this thread for info:  http://shfb.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=30144

The only other option is that there is something wrong with the .NET installation on the machine.  You might try it on a different machine to see if you can get it to work.  Apart from that, I'm out of ideas.

I figured out the problem. When I ran into another problem with another application, the fix for that also fixed Sandcastle.

Look at the last reply here:

I hope this helps someone like it helped me.
