Sonarqube code analysis for MsBuild 2.0 not working

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • Community EditionVersion 8.4.1 (build 35646)
  • Sonarscanner 5.2.1
  • I am trying to scan a .net framework 2.0 code through sonarscanner and I am getting the following error in the third step :

Commands used :

SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k:“PROJECT_KEY” /“https://URL” /d:sonar.login=“TOKEN”
MsBuild.exe test.sln /t:Rebuild
SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end /d:sonar.login=“TOKEN”

Error :

6:38:28.139 The SonarScanner for 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 14.0.25420.1 and higher 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)
    06:38:28.149 Post-processing failed. Exit code: 1
  • I have try using Jenkins, Azure Devops as well as doing it manually on a windows machine. All showing same error.

Please help me on this case.
