NullReferenceException

Mar 19, 2009 at 9:11 PM
I am getting a nullreferenceexception when I try to run the profiler from our main build server but not when I run it from my desktop.
Using CruiseControl v1.4.0.3400
Using MBBuild v3.5.30729.1
Using MS.NET Framework v3.5 SP1
PC that it works on is Vista Enterprise
PC that it does not work on is Windows Server Standard SP1 64bit
Any ideas??

I had the same problem while building with multiple processors.  For me, building with /m:1 fixed the issue.

I got source code and fixed it right away by adding "if (properties != null)" around foreach in Project constructor.
