The type initializer for '.' threw an exception

DveHDveH Posts: 1 New member
I'm trying to add obfuscastion to an MsBuild task.

The project builds and obfuscates successfully when being built using visual studio. However, when using our TFS server, I receive the following: "error : The type initializer for '.' threw an exception"

Is this an issue that has been encountered and resolved previously?

I am using SmartAssembly v & TFS 2013.

    Hi @DveH

    Thanks for your post! I suspect that the user running the TFS build may not have access to the SQL Server that SmartAssembly uses (Tools>Options>Database options). Could you first check if that might be the case?
