Hi @vishnu_G

as far as I understand from your logs the StockManagement\StockManagement.csproj cannot be found. As this is a build problem I think it is not related to one of our products.

In any case, you should check that the project was cloned successfully at the right location (including any subprojects if needed) or if the path is correct in the StockManagement.sln.
