Publishing a Click Once app from Visual Studio 2013 fails after upgrade to R# 188.8.131.520
I have a completely reproducable issue that affects ALL ClickOnce apps:
If I turn off R# I can publish and republish a ClickOnce app as many times as I like.
If I enable R#, the build fails after the first publish.
After it has failed, if I go to the project properties and go to one of the tabs of the Project Properties, I get this error message:
A numeric comparison was attempted on "$(TargetPlatformVersion)" that evaluates to "" instead of a number, in condition "'$(TargetPlatformVersion)' > '8.0'". C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\12.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets
This problem then persists until I close and reopen Visual Studio. Suspending and Resuming R# does not fix the issue.
Note that rebuilding the project causes no problems - it's only the publishing that causes the issue.
Also, if I suspend R# before publishing and resume it after publishing, things are fine.
Also, it's fine with Visual Studio 2012
Here's what I think is an important clue
This error only occurs if the following option is enabled:
Project Properties -> Publish Tab -> "Automatically increment revision with each publish".
When that option is selected, the project's ".csproj" file will be updated during the build. Perhaps that is triggering the problem.
