Could you please take a look at this build:

and let me know why the 1st job is failing? I can't see any details or error messages....

    What about the compilation errors starting here?

    oh my... that's embarrassing...
    You are obviously right and that is the cause for the failure.

    I swear I've look at the log a number of times and totally missed that!

    Suggestion for a future enhancement (very handy for dumbs like me) highlight the build error messages with a red colour. It can be difficult to spot those, specially in logs with hundreds of thousands lines on which the error doesn't spot the build immediately and, therefore, the root cause is not right at the very end of the log output.

    If you remove the pipe to Write-Output does that compilation error still remain un-highlighted?
