SonarQube - Scanner execution issue


I developed the project using in C and plan to use the SonarQube for code quality and security. I am using to Install SonarQube using a docker-compose file in Windows Server 2019.

  • Docker Engine - v20.10.5
  • docker-compose version 1.29.0, build 07737305
  • sonar-scanner-msbuild-

I tried to scan my code with SonarScanner for .NET, but I got the below error message in the last step. I have executed the given below 3 steps, but I have an issue with the last step.

Step 1 : SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k:“ZOOM” /“http://localhost:9000” /d:sonar.login=“393f6ad2162d414b8514b467d0a4dab391a4cb5d”

Step 2: MsBuild.exe /t:Rebuild

Step 3: SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end /d:sonar.login=“393f6ad2162d414b8514b467d0a4dab391a4cb5d”

I followed the steps given by the SonarQube, but while executing the 3rd step I have an error message given below. So kindly check and advise.

  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

Do any of the conditions in the error message apply to you?

Also, you’ve just revoked that analysis token you exposed to the world^. Right?


Hi Ann,

Thanks for your response, Not like that I just follow the steps given in the sonarqube server.

while I am doing step 3, I got the above error message.

Could you please reply to the following questions?

  • what is the version of SonarQube that you are using?
  • are you running all commands from the same folder?
  • what is the version of MSBuild you are using?
  • please give us the verbose output of the command (please run SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k:“MyProject” /d:sonar.verbose=true as the begin step, and please attach the output of the BEGIN and END steps)
  • please give the verbose msbuild logs msbuild /v:d > build.log
