We have a nuget package with only one file - an asp file.
and while deploying the below is the error and the package does not have any of the powershell files and also the path is C:\Webpages\www46
which is different in the error as below.

Any suggestions??

Executing powershell script C:\Webpages\www46\CAP_1.8.4.6-A5\PostDeploy.ps1...
Test-Path : Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path' because it is null.
At C:\Webpages\www46\CAP_1.8.4.6-A5\PostDeploy.ps1:8 char:18

  • So, is the error that Deployment Manager appears to run a postDeploy script even when it is not present in the package?

    If what I have said above is correct, would you please check that if this script is present in another step in the same project? Is it present in earlier releases of the project?

  • Chirayu
    Many thanks for your response.
    There are no other steps or packages involved in this?
  • My colleague informs me that you might be using RedGatePackageDirectoryPath variable and setting it to this value:

    If you're using RedGatePackageDirectoryPath, you should also set RedGatePurgePackageDirectoryBeforeCopy to True to clean the target directory before copying. If the directory is not being cleaned and if there is a script there from previous deployments it will be picked up by Deployment Manager and run.

    Does this fix your issue?
