my CI is at
and my repo is at

The problem initially I tried using the CI with the $(DevEnvDir) for the hintpath , but later I came to know from that using it is not a good idea. So I changed it to $(VS120COMNTOOLS)..\IDE.

This is working in my local machine, but my CI keeps on failing.

    So How do I meet these dependencies.
    1. Microsoft.JSON.Core
    2. Microsoft.JSON.Editor
    3. Microsoft.VisualStudio.JSON.Package
    4. Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.Extensions
