Cannot find outputs of project output group 

The outputs of the referenced project output group cannot be found. The name of the referenced configuration may have changed, or the referenced project may have been removed from the solution.

If a project output group was initially set to use a specific project configuration when it was first added and the configuration was subsequently renamed, then the configuration may not be found.

Here is another reason this error might occur: A project specified in a project output group was removed and then subsequently added back into the solution. The deployment project was removed from the solution prior to the project output group's removal and added back after its addition. If these things have occurred, then the project output group may not be found. In this case, the missing project output group will be renamed to "unable to determine name."

This error will also occur if an existing deployment project is added to a solution that does not contain the referenced project.

To correct this error

  1. In the File System Editor, remove the project output group.

  2. On the Action menu, choose Add, Project Output.

  3. In the Add Project Output Group dialog box, select the renamed configuration from the Configuration list.

If "unable to determine name" is specified in the error message:

  1. In the File System Editor, remove the project output group.

  2. On the Action menu, choose Add, Project Output.

  3. In the Add Project Output Group dialog box, select the project group from the Project list.
