SlowCheetah might be a bit buggy to set up, but once it works its great!

Conflicts with ReSharper 8.1. Had to Suspend and Resume Resharper because I could not edit any file after applying a template

by Craig Brett (JP) | March 25 2014

I spent an afternoon trying to get this going for a team project. After a fair while thrashing with the already-mentioned "The SlowCheetah.Xdt.TransformXml" task could not be loaded from the assembly" problem, I eventually solved it by deleting the %localappdata%\Microsoft\MsBuild\Slowcheetah folder and it semed to resolve itself on my local machine and I was allowed to build and run stuff. I then deployed this to my colleagues who didn't have the plugin, under the impression that the NuGet package would make everything alright. No joy, regardless of what I tried. I'm now having to see if I can hand-roll a solution for changing config settings for people. Gets 2 stars because I like the idea and it kind of worked on my machine.

Nice integration with VS. Makes a chore much more manageable.

An invaluable addition to Visual Studio! Totally beats editing project files by hand. Well done!

Very nice tool, keep up the good work.

FYI to all people that get's build errors and use Ncrunch. You must include the package in Ncrunch, else you will get build errors.

Version 2.5.10.1 works well with ncrunch, version 2.5.10.2 and 2.5.10.3 doesn't.

amazing, cant believe I haven't found this sooner!
thanks for the simply awesome plug in

Excellent work -- so far only one major problem with web applications (solved here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16225304/using-slowcheetah-config-transforms-on-web-config-in-a-3-5-web-forms-app)

by e.sabbadin | September 19 2013

It works in vsnet 2012, but NOT on the TFS build server. I did not installed the plugin on the built server
I expected that the plugin was required only in the configuration phase, not to trigger the magic
, that is that it used the native xmltrasform features .. isn0t it the case ?

Hi e.sabbadin, when you install SlowCheetah into a project there is a message in the package manager console regarding build server support. Because of the way NuGet package restore is implemented there is some additional steps that need to be taken. You can read more info on how to enable that at http://sedodream.com/2012/12/24/SlowCheetahBuildServerSupportUpdated.aspx.

by Ed Schimmel | September 13 2013

It really annoys me that after an upgrade Slow Cheetah suddenly stopped working. In the first instance I was really pleased with this tool, but I can not use it when it is this buggy. It is a shame that there are no other tools doing the transformations, as far as I know.

Did you file a question in Q&A regarding your issue?

FYI please don't expect each release to be bug free. This is a one man project so I rely on the community to help in reporting issues when they arise.

by Pbsharper | September 06 2013

Highly recommended!
Used it for polyglot (f# c#) project. Worked without a hitch!

by zendu | September 06 2013

Release 2.5.7.1 simply sucks. It cannot even build project by throwing error - Could not copy the file"...exe.config" because it was not found.

PS: I wonder why there is no way to download earlier versions. It would at least made it easy to downgrade. With corporate firewall blocking NuGet packages, I am left with no options but to uninstall SlowCheetah and wait for next release that will fix the issue. So bad!

Sorry I had some issues with 2.5.7.1. Things should be better with 2.5.8, can you try and let me know? FYI regarding installing older versions you can always use the NuGet package manager console to install a specific version of the build support.

  • Jenkins and Automatic Package Restore
    7 Posts | Last post November 26, 2013
    • The Jenkins service is running under the Local System account. Can it be that Automatic Package Restore is not correctly installing the SlowCheetah files in the AppData folder? The build is looking for them there, but can't find them:

  • VS 2013 not transforming web.config in debug
    3 Posts | Last post November 21, 2013
    • I have a Web.Debug.config file that logs to a debug log file instead of the release version. In VS 2010, after I upgraded to the extension version 2.5.10, it would no longer transform web.config in debug mode. After I installed the NuGet SlowCheetah package 2.5.5, then would it start working again (installing the latest SlowCheetah NuGet did not work).
      
      After upgrading to VS 2013, even with using SlowCheetah NuGet 2.5.5, it's no longer transforming web.config in debug mode. I also tried NuGet package 2.5.10.3 and it still doesn't work. The Preview Transform function shows the correct transform being applied.
      
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    • For web projects the web.config transforms are invoked on package/publish, not on build. 
    • Any options to make the transform happen on local build as well? This will allows individual developer to override the team settings in the web.config.
  • Error on build
    1 Posts | Last post November 19, 2013
    • We are encountering the following error on many computer, we just downloaded the latest version, and we are trying it on VS2013:
      
      The "SlowCheetah.Xdt.TransformXml" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Users\Ahmad\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10\SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Users\Ahmad\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10\SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.
      
      We tried to search the path, there is two folders:
      C:\Users\Ahmad\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10.2; this contains the vs extension,
      C:\Users\Ahmad\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10; this contains a copy of my project !!! what is that?
  • Build error caused by SlowCheetah v2.5.10
    5 Posts | Last post November 19, 2013
    • I am getting the following build error
      
      Error 28 Could not copy "bin\Debug\app.config" to "C:\Users\ara\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10\bin\Debug\app.config". Exceeded retry count of 10. Failed.
      
      If I delete all files (except 2 files) in 
      
      C:\Users\ara\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10
      
      then I can build the project. However, after that I cannot build another project in the same solution
      
      Error 17 Could not copy the file "bin\Debug" to the destination file "C:\Users\ara\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10\bin\Debug", because the destination is a folder instead of a file. To copy the source file into a folder, consider using the DestinationFolder parameter instead of DestinationFiles.
      
      Why is this happening? It seems like the SlowCheetah is trying to write the projects output to the same directory.
      
    • Can you upgrade the SlowCheetah NuGet package to 2.5.10.3? That should fix things.
    • I updated, but the transformation is not working anymore. The option "Show transform" is not shown.
    • I don't know if this is relevant, when I run install-package SlowCheetah I get the following:
      
      PM> install-package SlowCheetah
      'SlowCheetah 2.5.10.3' already installed.
      [ProjectName] already has a reference to 'SlowCheetah 2.5.10.3'.
      Failed to generate binding redirects for '[ProjectName]'. 'Microsoft.Tools.WindowsInstallerXml.VisualStudio.WixProjectNode' does not contain a definition for 'References'
    • Great tool! One problem though: When you try to transform a root-element Visual Studio tells me: Could not write Destination file: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
      
      I'm using VS2012 Update 3 and SlowCheetah 2.5.10.3 (NuGet package). An example of my config file (Invoice.Debug.config):
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
      <InvoicePaymentService xmlns:xdt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/XML-Document-Transform" cancelUrl="http://mysite.nl/winkelen/geannuleerd/" returnUrl="http://onderwijsadvies.preview.gengu.nl/winkelen/bedankt/" debug="False" testMode="True" xdt:Transform="Replace">
      </InvoicePaymentService>
      
      I've tested it with multiple config files and settings. Re-created the transforms etc...
  • Problem with files copying to 2.5.10 directory
    5 Posts | Last post November 13, 2013
    • Not sure if the installer got botched, but after upgrading to 2.5.10 from 2.5.9.1, our test machine began to copy files into a C:\Users\user.x.name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10 directory.  The files it copied were the project files that were being built. I was able to work around the issue by defining the SlowCheetahToolsPath in the SlowCheetah.Transforms.targets file to define the tool path.  Is there something I can do so I don't have to hack the targets file manually in order to get SC to work?
    • Can you try after a VS restart and let me know if you still have issues?
    • After both a VS restart and machine restart, SC is still creating a v2.5.10 directory next to the v1 directory in the user profile\local\microsoft\msbuild\slowcheetah directory.  The contents of the directory seem to be all of the project files for any project that contains transforms. They get copied over each other as a project with a transform is processed.  When I uninstall and reinstall SC, the problem persists.
    • I worked around this problem with a conditional Using in my SC tarets file.  Stick these two lines in @ line 36 in your C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v1\SlowCheetah.Transforms.targets file.  The 2nd using will use the correct v1 location.
      
        <UsingTask TaskName="SlowCheetah.Xdt.TransformXml" AssemblyFile="$(sc-MSBuildLibPathLocal)SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll" Condition="Exists('$(sc-MSBuildLibPathLocal)SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll')"/>
        <UsingTask TaskName="SlowCheetah.Xdt.TransformXml" AssemblyFile="SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll" Condition="Exists('SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll')"/>
    • The second UsingTask solved my problem too. Thanks

    • Hi,
      I'm getting the following error message when trying to use SlowCheetah 2.5.10:

      This problem was not happening when using version 2.5.5, and it started happening after updating to this version.
    • Are you using Ncrunch?
      If you are you must include the slowcheetah package in Ncrunch.
      You didn't have to do this in verison 2.5.5
      
      http://tech.pro/blog/1586/making-ncrunch-build-projects-that-use-slowcheetah
    • And also another note, version 2.5.10.1 is the latest verison that runs well with Ncrunch. Version 2.5.10.2 and 2.5.10.3 causes the build error, even if you include the package :(
    • I'm not using Ncrunch yet, I'm just using NUnit framework. What I did was to install the SlowCheetah package from Visual Studio Gallery, add transforms in the configuration file and compile the solution. 
      I'm currently using VS Ultimate 2012 with .Net fwk 4.5
    • What issues are you having with 2.5.10.3? As far as I know most issues are fixed in 2.5.10.3.
    • I have been having a similar issue.  This was not fixed in the 2.5.10.3 install the files are not installed to 2.5 directory.
    • Me too.  Looks like a V1 folder was created at install and a V2.5.10 on build (saying "it looks like").  Copying the dll from the V1 folder to the V2.5.10 folder is a workaround.

    3 Posts | Last post November 11, 2013
    • I'm new to SlowCheetah and was wondering if someone could provide a simple example for me. I've setup a simple C# app, and I added one setting to the settings called ServerName. In the App.Config file I see:
          <applicationSettings>
              <SCExample.Properties.Settings>
                  <setting name="ServerName" serializeAs="String">
                      <value>TheProductionServer</value>
                  </setting>
              </SCExample.Properties.Settings>
          </applicationSettings>
      
      I've right clicked on App.config and created the transform files and I see them. I'm having trouble with the syntax of the transform. I've tried several variations, but I think:
      
        <appSettings>
          <SCExample.Properties.Settings>
            <add key="ServerName" value="DevServer" xdt:Transform="Replace" xdt:Locator="Match(key)"/>
      OR:
            <add name="ServerName" xdt:Transform="Replace" xdt:Locator="Match(name)">
              <Value>DevServer</Value>  
            </add>
          </SCExample.Properties.Settings> 
        </appSettings>
      
      Should be correct but it's not working. What am I missing?
      
      Thanks in advance for your help!
      
      Best,
      
      -james
    • Okay, I figured it out:
      
        <applicationSettings>
          <SCExample.Properties.Settings>
            <setting name="ServerName" serializeAs="String" xdt:Transform="Replace">
              <value>TheDevServer</value>
            </setting>
          </SCExample.Properties.Settings>
        </applicationSettings>
      
      works. Is this the best way?
      
      -james
    • My example above is missing an xdt:Locator and will drive you nuts. here's some example transforms which are working for me:
      
          <SCExample.Properties.Settings>
            <!-- We don't want to change the Flow Through setting so nothing special has to be done -->
            
            <!-- To Delete a setting, use the Transform Remove -->
            <setting name="DeleteThisSetting" xdt:Transform="Remove" xdt:Locator="Match(name)"/>
      
            <!-- To Change a Setting, use the Transform Replace -->
            <setting name="ATweakedSetting" serializeAs="String" xdt:Transform="Replace" xdt:Locator="Match(name)">
              <value>This Setting was tweaked in app.debug.config</value>
            </setting>
            
            <!-- To Add a Setting, Use Transform Insert-->
            <setting name="AnotherAddedSetting" serializeAs="String" xdt:Transform="Insert">
              <value>This Setting was added in app.debug.config.</value>
            </setting>
            
            <!-- if you want to get REAL picky on where it goces, use Insert After -->
            <!-- The xpath expression does the heavy lifting -->
            <setting name="AnotherAddedSettingPlacedAfterServerName" serializeAs="String" 
                     xdt:Transform="InsertAfter(//setting[@name='ATweakedSetting'])">
              <value>This Setting was added in app.debug.config.</value>

  • Transform which doesn't depend on configuration.
    2 Posts | Last post November 07, 2013
    • Is it possible to create transform that doesn't depend on configuration?
      I need to make transform for localization purposes.
      I have file Data.xml and I need a transform Data.ru-RU.xml which will replace some values in source file and produce output localized file Data.ru-RU.xml
      
      This means that I need original file Data.xml to be included in project as well as translated one Data.ru-RU.xml
    • SlowCheetah won't help you in this situation. You could do this by writing some MSBuild that calls the TransformXml task.

    • Hi!
      
      Love the product, and have been using it for a while with great success.  After an update today though my Azure Worker Role project no longer builds with the following error:
      
      Error	21	The "SlowCheetah.Xdt.TransformXml" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Users\idrennan\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10\SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Users\idrennan\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10\SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.	InternalServices
      
      Could you provide any guidance as to the cause?  Also, below is the relevant line(s) in my .proj file that seem to now be causing the issue:
      
        <PropertyGroup>
          <SlowCheetahTargets Condition=" '$(SlowCheetahTargets)'=='' ">$(LOCALAPPDATA)\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v1\SlowCheetah.Transforms.targets</SlowCheetahTargets>
        </PropertyGroup>
        <Import Project="$(SlowCheetahTargets)" Condition="Exists('$(SlowCheetahTargets)')" />
      
      
    • This is the error that my colleague was experiencing. I bet if you look in that directory (C:\Users\idrennan\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10) you'll find a copy of the project files you were building at the time the build failed.
    • Can you try restarting VS and trying again? I think that should solve things.
    • @Ian Drennan:
      It seems that necessary files are placed at %APPDATA%\..\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v1. Copy files from the folder to %APPDATA%\..\Local\Microsoft\MSBuild\SlowCheetah\v2.5.10.
      List of files:
      Install-Manifest.xml
      Microsoft.Web.XmlTransform.dll
      SlowCheetah.Tasks.dll
      SlowCheetah.Transforms.targets
      SlowCheetah.Xdt.dll
      
      This solved the problem you stated for me. However, I continue to get following error, for which I have not found any solution:
      
      The "SlowCheetah.Xdt.TransformXml" task was not found. Check the following: 1.) The name of the task in the project file is the same as the name of the task class. 2.) The task class is "public" and implements the Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask interface. 3.) The task is correctly declared with <UsingTask> in the project file, or in the *.tasks files located in the "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319" directory.
    • Hey, if you are running Ncrunch then it's causing the build error.
      Install version 2.5.10.1 (important to get that version cause verison 2.5.10.2 and 2.5.10.3 doesn't work) of slowcheetah and include the package in Ncrunch and it will work again. :)

    • So following Zendu's suggestion worked (this is a clan install computer btw).
      
      I copied the files from the v1 folder to the v2.5.10, restarted VS, and then it seemed to work.
      
      Sayed-Ibrahim-Hashimi - hopefully this gives you enough info to troubleshoot/fix the issue.
      
      Thanks all!
    • I'm also experiencing same problem after installing SlowCheetah in fresh environment (VS2013, Windows8.1). 
    • Sorry to hear about the issues. Most of these issues should be fixed if you upgrade your SlowCheetah NuGet package to 2.5.10.3.
      
      @Christoffer, what issues are you having with 2.5.10.3?
