MSBuild Error MSB3179

MSB3179: Problem isolating COM reference '<assembly>': '<error>'

This is a generic error message indicating a problem with the generation of RegFree COM entries in application manifest (as specified by the IsolatedComReferences task parameter). The latter part of the error message contains more information about the nature of the problem. A possible cause of this error is that RegFree COM components are not properly registered on the build computer.

To correct this error

  • Make sure that all COM components are registered on the build computer.
