R# SDK nuget package dependencies fail on build

I have used nuget package R# SDK for referencing instead of preinstalled SDK on app-veyor server. After that my project MockMetrics always builds with errors like this(from build log):

"d:\Builds\l3jg1b3x3e\src\MockMetrics.nuget\NuGet.exe" install "d:\Builds\l3jg1b3x3e\src\MockMetrics\MockMetrics.Eating\packages.config" -source "" -NonInteractive -RequireConsent -solutionDir "d:\Builds\l3jg1b3x3e\src\MockMetrics\ " Restoring NuGet packages... To prevent NuGet from downloading packages during build, open the Visual Studio Options dialog, click on the Package Manager node and uncheck 'Allow NuGet to download missing packages'. Installing 'HaveBox 1.6.0'. Installing 'JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK 8.1.555'. Successfully installed 'HaveBox 1.6.0'. Successfully installed 'JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK 8.1.555'. PrepareForBuild:
Creating directory "bin\Debug\". Creating directory "obj\Debug\". [.....] error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'JetBrains' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

I see that, packages were succesfully installed. But then dependency on JetBrains namespace failed.

    Hi Dmitry,

    It should work now. Please let me know if it doesn't.

    Oh, just noticed you reference Resharper SDK as a NuGet package. This is cool - no need to install it on build machines.

    Regarding the problem - make sure you are not referencing specific assembly of the SDK. Open project file contents and check assembly references.

    I have checked out. All sdk references are imported with tips:

      "<Import Project="..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Props" Condition="Exists('..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Props')" />
      <Import Project="..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Targets" Condition="Exists('..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Targets')" />"

    Is it the latest version: https://github.com/KozhevnikovDmitry/MockMetrics or you roll-backed? I can't see ReSharper package there...

    Look into 'trunk' branch.

    OK, I see. I've cloned trunk to my dev machine and after running 'nuget restoreeverything built OK with few warnings. However, I noticed restoringJetBrains.ReSharper.SDK` took some time.

    My guess would be something's wrong with restoring that package on AppVeyor build machine. Perhaps, it requires some permissions or trying to access GAC...

    Next week we are releasing beta of the new release - I'm sure your project will work there just fine as it uses for builds clean VMs with admin access.

    SDK consists of huge number of packages, maybe later I will be able to reduce it. In order SDK via nuget was intended specially for CI. But even on dev machine project sometimes(first time, on update sdk package)builds with errors. Anyway thanks for great support! Look foward for next release.

    It's time to try your project on a new release!

    Use this link to register for beta:

    Let me know how it goes.

    Unforutanetelly have the same errors with R# sdk dependencies . I have regathered all projects for eliminate any inconsistencies. According to build log R# sdk is downloaded from nuget correctly, but copying sdk files to bin\debug directory is performing after building assembly. In other word the sequence is: downloading packages => compiling(fails with errors) => copying sdk files to bin/debug. In the other hand nuget package HaveBox is downloading and copying in right order and its dependencies do not fail. May be the way of importing sdk to project is the cause of this behavior. SDK adds the next strings into csproj file:

      <Import Project="..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Props" Condition="Exists('..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Props')" />
      <Import Project="..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Targets" Condition="Exists('..\packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.Targets')" />

    And the HaveBox adds:
        <Reference Include="HaveBox">

    SDK imports lead to catalog "packages\JetBrains.ReSharper.SDK.8.1.555\build" where particular props and targets files(that includes sdk references) are placed.

    OK, I see.

    What if you add "nuget restore" command into "Before build script" box - to restore all packages before build occurs? Would it help?

    Yes! The solution has builded succesfully! Thanks for great work.
    Now have a problem with running tests: Could not load JetNativeHooks.dll. This lib in two varies must be placed to bin\debug\x86 and bin\debug\x64.

    Cool, you can just copy that assembly into both folders in "before test script" ;)
