MSB4057: The target “Build” does not exist in the project.
That was strange since the build run successfully in a development workstation with VS 2012 and .NET 4.5 installed.
Solution (CI Server)
By moving the project to a different agent, with .NET 4.5 installed, the problem was solved on the CodeBetter CI server.
However, the same issue was reported again - this time in a development workstation with VS 2013 RC.
The most important changes are shown below. You can also see the diff as an image here:
A note for VS 2012 users
While VS 2013 RC applies these changes automatically for F# projects, in VS 2012 the project file must be tweaked manually:
###Step 1 - Append:
###Step 2 - Find and Replace:
###Step 3 - Find and Replace:
The F# build targets, compiler, and run time should be located successfully now.
As of today, in Visual Studio 2012 the Run Code Analysis command is not available for F# projects.
Enable Code Analysis in MSBuild
To enable Code Analysis in MSBuild, include the following elements in the project file:
Unfortunately, even with the above elements, Code Analysis will not run for F# projects during the MSBuild process.
Edit the Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Targets file which is located at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v11.0\CodeAnalysis
or '$(Language)'=='F#' at the following locations:

Using the underlying power of GitHub, blog authors often take a step further and roll their own discussion and commeting systems.
The best examples are:
- Add a comment by sending a pull request by Mark Seemann
- Add a comment through the GitHub API by Ivan Zuzak
- Add a comment as a GitHub issue by Zach Holman
With the evolution of blog-aware static site generators, like Jekyll, GitHub is becoming a central part for hosting both blog content and comments.
The definitions about Hackers, Developers, and Programmers, that I like best are:
"Hackers are generally loners who don't care if others can figure out their code (at least while they are in the mode or role of hacking). Thus, they build their own little world in it that fits themselves nicely so that they can hack fast, but the rest of the world be damned."
"On the 'programmer' vs. 'developer' debate: 'Programmer' focuses on the 'craft'. 'Developer' focuses on the business. Both are valuable."
I am a programmer.
