Trying to add a new package via the web interface doesn't seem to work for me.

From ProGet Home:
Click Add Package
Click Create New Package
Choose File
Upload File
Added a title
Click Add to feed - nothing happens


Our in-house IT will not support a site that requires running an installer on a production server. Is it possible to manually install ProGet as an IIS site using the full SQLServer back-end? Are there step-by-step instructions (or PS scripts) available?



A custom extension I wrote depends on Subversion extension. Now, in order to obtain configuration settings (like username and password) one would need to call Providers_GetProvider(int? Provider_Id) (look at: ) to obtain an object and then call Execute().Provider_Config to obtain configuration object.

I have checked the database table Providers and noticed that the provider I want to use has ID 11. However, as I am not that keen on binding my extension to a single subversion provider, I do wonder if there is a possibility to use a nice provider selector (like the one Subversion plugin is using) to select a provider and get id that way?

Also, I would like to get some help regarding, how to make a path selector field instead of a plain text one.


Just upgraded to the latest. Now every time we run a build, we get the following exception:

I installed BuildMaster yesterday and was starting to configure it and now I am getting

Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file.

Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: User is not authorized for the selected task: Applications_ViewOverview

Its not taking me to the login page, just throwing the error.


How do I turn off the token requirement when pushing new Nuget packages to the server?


My team is already using BuildMaster extensively to deploy compiled applications such as MVC web apps. Now, we want to use BuildMaster to manage releases of our back-end libraries. We want to use ProGet as our enterprise package manager and for its integration with NuGet and Visual Studio.

Am I correct in assuming that the BuildMaster NuGet extension is the link between BuildMaster and ProGet? Is there any documentation or KB articles on integrating the two applications?

Looking forward to your response and a more productive environment with your help. Thanks!

Is it possible to install ProGet onto an existing IIS website instead of having it create its own website?


Dear Team,

We have few steps to build and deploy the code on to the build server. And the last action group in the workflow is - 'Package and Run Tests'

It has 5 steps within it, in which the step - 'Execute MSTest Tests' fails. It runs till it is executing the test and fails the test.

Error Message:
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
TestCleanup method Tests.Cleanup threw exception. System.NullReferenceException: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object..

The above message occurs in the Log Details of the test.

The test runs normally on the local machine but throws this exception on the build server.

Could you please tell me if I am missing any settings?

Thank you so much.


Getting the following error when I try to create a new instance of a config file.
An instance of this file with this name already exists.
The same file already exists in production but I'
m trying to create it in staging.


Hello, I am evaluating Proget and met a problem.

I have a nuget pack for a Silverlight lib. The pack also contains pdb and source files. After properly setting the symbol/source server, I can see the pdb are successfully downloaded, but failed to 'step in' because the source search failed.

I've tried normal .NET and everything works fine (i.e. the source can be downloaded and found by Visual Studio.)

Is it a known issue for Proget? Is there any work around?



I just installed your product for the first time. I provided credentials for an existing SQL Server (2008) and told it to use IIS. It installed SQL Server Express anyway (which took a long time and should be completely unnecessary). Then after installation completed, it loaded the URL http://localhost:81/Errors/Configuration.htm which doesn't load, it just shows "This page isn't redirecting properly" (which means it's redirecting to itself).

While I expect it might be caused because the SQL credentials were tested with my current user account but it is using a service account to connect, or maybe it didn't configure IIS correctly, it seems like a fairly poor user experience for just pulling the product out of the box.

Fun Lights Out game though.


I am trying to run a simple script in Oracle using BuildMaster. It is a one-line script that runs in SQLPlus and drops a table.

drop table t;

When I run it in BuildMaster, it returns and ORA-00911 error, invalid character.

If I remove the semicolon from the script, it runs OK in buildmaster.

We are in the process of purchasing the BuildMaster tool, but if it is not able to run our existing Oracle scripts, we can't use it for out database deployments.

Please let me know if there is a parameter I need to change or if BuildMaster is not able to run scripts with a semi-colon.

As I can see it is impossible to set up custom LDAP server. This feature would be very useful. Is there in your roadmap, or could it be a sponsored feature?


I would like to track user activity, configuration changes of ProGet. I did not find any logs generated by ProGet. Is it possible to enable logging?


Has anybody configured a reverse proxy in front of a ProGet feed? I have been able to get everything working except the log-in redirect and the feeds page to work.


We are seeing a ton of the following error when we try to delete or deploy a web.config file.

An unhandled exception occurred while executing this action: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'e2fbfea6-3744-4002-90ea-cf86f2a6bf3c.xml' is denied. at System.IO.Directory.DeleteHelper(String fullPath, String userPath, Boolean recursive) at System.IO.Directory.Delete(String fullPath, String userPath, Boolean recursive) at Inedo.BuildMaster.Util.Files.DeleteFolder(String path) at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Agents.LocalFileOperationsExecuter.DeleteDirectories(String[] directoryNames) at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Agents.Local.LocalAgent.Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Agents.IFileOperationsExecuter.DeleteDirectories(String[] directoryNames) at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Actions.RemoteCommandExecution.RemoteActionExecuterBase.remoteAction_InitializeRemoteConfiguration(Object sender, RemoteConfigurationEventArgs e) at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Actions.RemoteActionBase.<.ctor>b__0(Object sender, EventArgs e) at Inedo.BuildMaster.Extensibility.Actions.ActionBase.ExecuteOnce()

Any suggestions? The user the build service run under is a local administrator so I'm not sure why this is happening.



I have a question regarding Workflows and Environments. But first, let me explain my situation.
We have an application we'll call ImportantApp for this example. This ImportantApp just now has release of 1.7 (Build 3). However, when still in version 1.3 (build whatever it was), management decided some features that will only be available in version 2.0. However, version 1.x must still be improved and maintained whilst development of version 2.0.

Hence, my Subversion directory looks something like this:

So basically, a trunk contains currently stable version. Development_stable branch also contains currently stable version, but all patches and new features for v1.x is developed there. Development branch is where v2.0 development is going on.

Versioning up until this point was done manually, however, now, we are migrating the process to BuildMaster.

How to go about it?

I thought I could do it with one single application and using different workflows. Unfortunately, I am not sure if actions can be different for same environment in different workflows or not.



my ProGet server is behing a proxy with authentification. I configure the proxy in the administration part with login and password, but, i'm not able to reach the test url with this error:
The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required
Have you already encountered this error?

best regards


I am curious if there are currently any issues with the AccuRev extension. We are on version v3.0.10.0 of the extension which says it is up to date. We are also using version 5.6 of AccuRev SCM.

I can configure the extension just fine and when I test the connection, it works. However, when I start creating the Action to get the latest version of the code, it errors.

I choosing Source Control -> Get Latest -> AccuRev. Once I go to browse the Source Path, it errors with the below message box. This was copied from Internet Explorer 9.

Message from webpage

An unexpected error occurred: Method not found: 'Inedo.BuildMaster.Files.ExtendedFileEntryInfo Inedo.BuildMaster.Files.DirectoryEntryBuilder.AddFile(System.String, Int64, System.DateTime)'..


I am not sure if there is anything I can do to resolve this, if it is an issue with the extension or BuildMaster itself.

I appreciate any help on this. We've had this product for over a year and finally are able to start using it so I have been tasked with getting it up and running.


BuildMaster 3.3.2 (Build 8)
AccuRev Extension
AccuRev SCM 5.6
