Failed to detect the version of the solution file
Posted by Yoni Davidson on 16 January 2018 01:23 PM

Errors that may occur: 

  1. Failed to initiate build 
  2. Failed to detect version of solution file 
  3. Failed to load solution file 
  4. Unknown file format 

 

 

This may be related to the contents of your solution file. If the file isn't formatted correctly, it may cause errors when executing with IncrediBuild. 

One of the reasons may be that the solution file was manually modified. 

 

VS2015 sln file sample: 

 

Not working: 

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 14.00 

# Visual Studio 14 

VisualStudioVersion  14.0.23107.0 

 

Working: 

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00 

# Visual Studio 14 

VisualStudioVersion  14.0.23107.0 

MinimumVisualStudioVersion  10.0.40219.1
