Cannot add part to the package. Part names cannot be derived from another part name by appending segments to it
Last week I ran into an issue where I was using nuget to package a .csproj file.
What I was after was the contents of the nuget package to contain a Content folder and inside this Content folder have one file called app.config.transform, that’s it.
If my .csproj file contained the following:-
<PropertyGroup Label="SlowCheetah"> <SlowCheetahTargets>..\.shared\SlowCheetah.Transforms.targets</SlowCheetahTargets> </PropertyGroup> <Import Project="$(MSBuildBinPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" /> <Import Project="$(SlowCheetahTargets)" Condition="Exists('$(SlowCheetahTargets)')" Label="SlowCheetah" />
Then the package contents had a single file called content – which is incorrect.
The way I fixed this was inside the .csproj file I changed the type of the app.config.transform from Content to None. I then changed my .nuspec file to have the following:-
<files> <file src="App.config.transform" target="Content" /> </files>
This fixed my issue with the contents of my nuget package, just incase anyone runs into the same issue.
