I'm attempting to set up a Subversion source control provider, and am receiving an error-

"Unable to connect. Can't determine the user's config path"

I've tried using SVN command line, and get a similar error-

"Unable to connect. svn: E125001: Can't determine the user's config path"


  • Windows Server 2008R2 64 bit
  • Subversion repository is across the network. Subversion URL is set as
    This URL works fine from TortoiseSVN repo browser.


I'm new to BuildMaster and I'm having a problem labeling source in Subversion (see the log bellow).

The "Get Latest from trunk" action works fine.

I've the BuildMaster Express 3.5.8 (Build 30),
Subversion 1.7.9 - both installed locally.

Thanks for an advice,

I have some questions regarding the usage of change scripts.

Let's say we have a project with two developers. Each has a local database, with a schema for development (with arbitrary data) and a schema for automated tests, which is filled and cleared by the test framework.
Further, we have three environments: Integration, where the project is built and the tests are run again; Staging, where the application is deployed and the DB contains some example data; and Production.

Now Developer 1 makes a change in the schema and commits updated code to into the trunk. She also creates a change script that can be applied to Staging (and later, Production).

  1. Developer 2 was working on something unrelated and now merges the changes into his working copy. How will his development schema be updated?

  2. After the change was already applied to staging, an emergency fix to the previous release was necessary. Lets say there is also a script to create the original database from scratch. Can BuildMaster be configured to automatically reset the database if its current version is "too recent"?


I have just installed BuildManager on one of our servers (Windows Server 2003 SP2).
It is using IIS on port 81 (Already had a site on iis port 80) I am using my own SQL server.
When I go to localhost:81 I get the following:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Configuration Error

Can anyone help?


When bmservice starts, both at the end of the setup, and if manually restarting the services with the admin tool, the VS JIT debugger catches an HttpListenerException. I also cannot access the BuildMaster portal, getting an "Oops! This link appears to be broken," from Google Chrome, and the IE equivalent from Internet Explorer.

When debugging with Visual Studio, the exception message says "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." The exception details from VS are below:

System.Net.HttpListenerException was unhandled

What "the file" is, I don't know.

I'm using Windows 7 x64. My hardware setup is as follows:
Processor: Intel i7-3770S @ 3.10GHz

I have 189 GB of free space on the hard drive BuildMaster is installed on. My BuildMaster version is, and is the Enterprise edition demo. I haven't been able to activate it because I cannot access anything except the docs and the admin tool. I am using a self-hosted installation on my desktop.

I'm not sure what other information you might need, but I will be happy to provide you with whatever info you like.



Via the NuGet command line, I'm attempting to upload a ~350 MB file to ProGet and either get a 404 error or Out of Memory Exception. I narrowed the problem down to files around ~20 MB being OK, but failing at ~40 MB.

I thought this might be a problem with NuGet.exe, but I cannot upload greater than ~40 MB files directly in the ProGet Web interface either. I've tried pushing with NuGet 2.2.1, 2.2.5 alpha, and the ProGet command line tools to no avail.

Does ProGet support uploading large files? I'm trying to construct a build pipeline using NuGet as the repository and need the 350 MB file to accomplish this goal.

Thanks - below are the errors. I couldn't seem to locate any related logs on my ProGet server.


(Occurs sometimes - I didn't nail down the pattern)

System.InvalidOperationException: Failed to process request. 'Not Found'.
The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.
at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()

(Occurs sometimes but seemingly less frequent than the 404 - I didn't nail down the pattern)

System.OutOfMemoryException: Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.
at System.IO.MemoryStream.set_Capacity(Int32 value)

(From a Manual Upload)

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.


I'm receiving this error after upgrading to ProGet 2.0.

Both in command line package manager and VS NuGet dialog.

I read here: that the only permissions needed to deploy DB scripts to SQL Server is the BuildMasterUser_Role. What if this role does not exist? How is this role created if the Service Account doesn't have permission to the SQL Server already?

We are trying to automate deployments to SQL Server and I initially provided the account "dbcreator" role but that failed. I couldn't find any documentation but for the link above. I had to grant it sysadmin privileges temporarily, and obviously that is not a good long-term solution.



Hi there,

I'm trying to run bmdbupdate.exe from a machine that is not the same as the database server. I know I must first use the 'C' option to configure the conn and init options, but what format do these options take? There are no examples and bmdbupdate.exe does not produce any error messages.

For example, what is the connection string format, and what is the init option used for?


I'm trying to setup a deployment and I'm having trouble connecting to our TFS2012 server to get the code. I get this error when the Server is set to the agent server...

"An unexpected error occurred while attempting to connect. Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation."

I get this error when Server is set to the buildmaster server (non-agent)...

"An unexpected error occurred while attempting to connect. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

I installed the TFS2012 extention and it restarted the services, what else do I need to do?


Hi there,

We are running BuildMaster version 3.5.6 build 22, self-hosted.

I have a configuration file - a log4net.config - that, during edit and when viewing under 'recent changes', is as expected.

However, as soon as I go to deploy the file - either during a workflow or using the 'Deploy Configuration File' functionality, the contents don't match what I'm expecting.

I believe I'm seeing an old version of the file. This is despite choosing a specific (the latest) version and irrespective of 'Force most recent template' yes/no.

Would appreciate any asistance in troublshooting this issue.



I am trying to execute a simple external powershell script that I have saved on a remote server.

The script contains

write-output $SolutionPath

And I have my variables text box set up to look like this

However when I run that powershell the SolutionPath is blank. What do I have set wrong to pass in the parameter to my powershell script?


The latest version of MVVMLight package (from the official nuget feed) cannot be server correctly by nuget. The package has indeed some duplication in its nuspec file, but nuget server can serve it or even when serving from a directory.
However, ProGet cannot serve it.


Hi there,

I work with Adam who has been harassing you with questions lately ;-)
As you may know we are in the process of evaluating ProGet at the moment and I seem to have run into a bug.

I've got a package that contains a single assembly, AwesomeDLL. I've been working on AwesomeDLL and need to test it in a different project, so I published AwesomeDLL.

When installing the package into my 2nd project, I opt to include pre-releases and my beta package shows up when searching for it and installs as expected.

The problem is though, when opting for stable releases, version (the latest stable release) does not show up. Infact the AwesomeDLL package does not show up at all.

Is this a bug on your side?

This is more of a feature request than a support issue, but I didn't know of anywhere else to log it.

I believe a killer feature for ProGet would be some kind of dependency management and diagramming page. Something along the lines of being able to select a package from the local feeds, and have ProGet show the dependencies required and where they come from. Additionally, being able to diagram those relationships and traverse the dependency tree to the child packages would be extremely useful.




We are just wondering if there is any plan to be able to filter specific versions of packages from connected feeds? We have just a couple of public packages the we use, that we know have a version or two that actually aren't working properly. For example Castle.Core (I think these version numbers are correct btw), actually contains Castle.Core assembly and has broken builds a couple of times.

This obviously is a niche feature so we're not really expecting it to be available, but perhaps others have had the same problem, we weren't sure.

Thanks once again,



(Apologies by the way, there are a number of questions from us as we are currently testing/implementing the product to move forward with the purchase.)

Do download counts for local packages work? We noticed when browsing the ProGet site for packages, the download counts seem to all say N/A, even when we know the packages have been downloaded and installed. This isn't really a major issue, just interesting for us to monitor what gets used.

Thanks if you get time to answer this slightly more frivolous question.



We have a local nuget feed, which is then in turn connected to the public nuget feed. The results however of searching the public feed directly, and searching through the connected NuGet feed in ProGet differ significantly.

e.g. Set up the two feeds side by side in visual studio (public feed, and ProGet feed, which has the public NuGet feed connected).
Search the public feed with the term 'MVVM'. Compare that with searching through the ProGet feed for the same search term. The results for the proget feed are essentially alphabetical.

This does not appear to the be the correct kind of behaviour?



NuGet Package explorer does not work with ProGet server because the OData option $inlinecount is not supported by the server. It is listed on the Nuget Codeplex site as fixed on NPE's side ( ), however this does not seem to be the case as I have built from the latest source and currently get the same error.

Is there any chance or plan to fix this in ProGet?



Is it possible to change the default location of the _SVCTMP path?
