  • Error running the custom tool
    2 Posts | Last post July 01, 2014
    • Hello,
      I also have the issue "Cannot find custom tool 'MaventionMinifiedCssFileGenerator' on this system."... I noticed in a post of yourself that you fixed this issue for VS 2012 & VS 2013 but maybe you didn't fix it for the VS 2010. That's the second time I reinstall the extension and after few hours, it starts failing...
      Thanks for your help
    • Re-hello,
      the tools stop working as soon as I close VStudio (weird). But the solution you propose is valid, when I open the DLL with Reflector, I notice that the assembly is built with the Framework 4.0. Would it be possible to rebuild it with the 3.5 and upload it here please ?

    • I wona minify js file which includes SharePoint field type called 'SP.FieldType.boolean' but I can`t.
    • Could you post the exact repro steps that I could use to reproduce this issue on my dev machine?

    • Will this also work for MOSS 2007?
      It is not mentioned, that it will not work for MOSS 2007 or that it even depends on SharePoint at all, but I get the error "Cannot find custom tool 'MaventionMinifiedCssFileGenerator' on this system."
    • Although I haven't tested it, it should theoretically work. The bug that you are mentioning, is something I have stumbled upon myself at some point. I thought that it had something to do with me installing VS11, but apparantly there is more to it. I'll see if I can find out anything more about it and will let you know if I find anything.
    • Hi Waldek,
      Same issue, Visual Studio often says that he cannot find the custom tool.
      Are you planning to share the source code so that we can try to fix it ?
    • Have you downloaded the latest version? There were some issues previously but those all should be fixed in the latest version. Have you changed anything about your Visual Studio setup recently by any chance?
    • Hi Waldek,
      I am also getting the error with Visual Studio saying it cannot find the tool. I came across it when I noticed that edits to the debug file weren't updated in the minified version automatically. I right-clicked on the css file and clicked Run Custom Tool. That was when VS says it cannot find your custom tool.
      I do have the latest version and recently tried re-installing it.
      Any ideas?
    • Are you using with MOSS2007 or SP2010 project?
