Could not find prerequisite '<package>' in path '<path>' 

This warning is generated when a package with the specified ProductCode (or product name, if that has been persisted) could not be found in the bootstrapping application cache. This is similar to MSBuild Error MSB3155 (Item '<package>' could not be located in '<path>').

To correct this error

  • Remove the package from the list of packages to bootstrap, or add the package to the cache. Also, be sure that the manifest is formatted correctly, using valid XML.
