Hi there,

I'm trying to build a simple MVC web app, and publish to an Azure web app service. I'm tyring to publish via a Web Deploy artifact. The generation of the artifact is failing because the first file referenced in my csproj can't be found. This is odd, because the same relative file path 'Scripts/angular-animate.js' seems to be found a little earlier on.

The output is available at

If I run msbuild /t:package on my local box, all files are successfully found and compressed.

I did find this post, although I'm not sure if this actually helps in my case:

I've tried a direct deploy via azure and that build trips up on the same file:

Any help to understand what I'm missing is much appreciated.

    It's supposed angular files should be committed to the repo but they are not:

    angularjs package is "design time" package I don't think it should be restore with nuget restore:

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks so much for looking into it Feodor. Of course it's so obvious now :) Sorry for taking your time.
