Not detecting that ASP.NET project was built

New user here, having problems with an ASP.NET project. I’ve had success with a couple projects, but this one is baffling me.

  • SonarQube 7.4 (build 18908) Community Edition
  • Scanner version sonar-scanner-msbuild- and is named SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe
  • MSBuild 14.0
  1. I run the begin step successfully
  2. The MSBuild step runs against the sln file with warnings but no errors and the output is built into a PrecompiledWebsite\ directory which is created in the same directory where I ran the begin and MSBuild
  3. The end step runs and I get the generic 4-part error:

The SonarQube MSBuild integration failed: SonarQube was unable to collect the required information about your projects.
Possible causes:

  1. The project has not been built - the project must be built in between the begin and end steps
  2. An unsupported version of MSBuild has been used to build the project. Currently MSBuild 14.0 and 15.0 are supported
  3. The begin, build and end steps have not all been launched from the same folder
  4. None of the analyzed projects have a valid ProjectGuid and you have not used a solution (.sln)
    Generation of the sonar-properties file failed. Unable to complete SonarQube analysis.

I know parts 1 and 3 are good. Part 2 should be good since I’m using MSBuild 14.0. I built using the .sln file, so #4 should be fine. Also for #4, there’s only one “project” file, a .publishproj, and it has a populated ProjectGuid tag.

If I look in .sonarqube\out\ProjectInfo.log, there aren’t any projects listed. I’m assuming it’s not detecting that a project was built, but I don’t know what it’s missing to be able to pick it up.

Does anyone have any insight into what might be going on?
