This blog will show you how to build Retail SDK for Dynamics 365 Commerce.

Prerequisites:

You have Retail SDK and MS build should be installed on your VM virtual machine. You may get download it through LCS.

Build SDK:

In this demonstration, we will be rebuilding a Retail SDK on a new environment downloaded from LCS.

Follow the below steps,

  • Open command prompt in Run as Administrator mode then change directory to 
    • C drive (If VM hosted on-premises) or
    • K drive (If VM hosted in the cloud)
  • Go to the Retail SDK folder using the below command.
  • Run the highlighted command “msbuild /t:rebuild” (inverted commas are not included)
  • After the execution of the above-mentioned command, It will show the following errors (errors can vary in this case)
  • To get rid of the above errors, we will change the Environment Variable of our system to “MS build exe“, the environment variable can be found by right-clicking the Windows button and select System from the appeared list as shown below
  • By clicking System, the following window will have appeared. As highlighted in the below screenshot. Click on the Advanced Systems Settings
  • Click on the Environment Variable button in the Advanced tab as shown below
  • The environment Variable button will open a new screen. In the below image lower grid has different options. We have to find the PATH variable and click Edit after selecting it.
  • We have to add a new path in System’s PATH variable. A new path will be of MS build\14.0 (14.0 based on installed version) \bin, which resides in C:\Program Files (X86)
  • After copying the above path add it into PATH as discussed before. Make sure your newly added path should be on top as shown below, otherwise it will not work.
  • Now rerun the same command “msbuild /t:rebuild” in command prompt with Run as Administrator mode. This time it will show no error 

The Retail SDK for Dynamics 365 Commerce has been rebuilt successfully!
