SA MSbuild task errors out during Teambuild

Hello, I'm using SmartAssembly 6.8.
My workflow involves a solution that builds 6 other .dll files before building an .exe file project at the end.
It is that .exe file which is obfuscated, has the .dll files obfuscated + merged, or embedded.
When running a local build from VS2010, (either via Build->Build Solution or Right clicking on the .exe project and publishing using ClickOnce,) I am able to create and obfuscate my the .exe successfully during the "AfterCompile" target containing the SmartAssembly.MSBuild.Tasks.Build command.

However, when attempting to build the project via Teambuild, I receive the following error:
...Unhandled Exception: Microsoft.Build.Shared.InternalErrorException: MSB0001: Internal MSBuild Error: Attempted to use an inactive task host.
 at Microsoft.Build.Shared.ErrorUtilities.VerifyThrow(Boolean condition, String unformattedMessage)
 at Microsoft.Build.BackEnd.TaskHost.LogMessageEvent(BuildMessageEventArgs e)

 at Microsoft.Build.CommandLine.MSBuildApp.Main()
 TF270015: 'MSBuild.exe' returned an unexpected exit code. Expected '0'; actual '255'.
Digging further into the log, this is what it says:

Build FAILED.
I don't know why this occurs.
Additionally, I can get it to "build" and obfuscate successfully from a team build using the "AfterBuild" target and the exec command=, however this causes issues with our post-build scripts...effectively breaking our workflow.
My .saproj file is looking for the dependency paths using the following structure:
HintPath="..\..\..\BLSupport\obj\Test\BLSupport.dll">
with Test being that configuration (there are 3, and each has its own .saproj and files for that version). So I know that everything should be in the proper place & visible...

Does anyone know why the SA MSbuild task would be able to obfuscate successfully during a localbuild/ClickOnce Publish (locally), but generate the described errors during a Team Build?
