SonarQube v8.2 Error: While Scanning Simple .net code (javax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory etc…)

As I am new to SonarQube Code scanner so need assistance as got stuck with below issue in SonarQube v 8.2.

SonarQube is installed on Windows server and I am trying to scan code form my client machine i.e Window 10.

I am executing from Developer Command Prompt for VS 2015

So far as per suggested solutions, I have updated my client machine with Java version to 11 SE, JDK 12, also placed apache-ant-1.10.7-bin and add in path, then also try by adding xercesImpl-2.12.1.jar in ant path but nothing work out so far.

JRE version: jre-8u251-windows-i586

I try to find out solution on forums but unable to find so… Kindly guide how to get rid from this error and run scanner successfully.

Thanks in advance.

hi @mhassan

welcome to this community forum!

could you please download the latest version of Scanner for MSBuild and try again? version 4.2 is quite old.

You can always check the latest version on the documentation page:
