Could not find a part of the path ‘\bin\roslyn\csc.exe’.

This error message when I try to run a web application have happened to me twice within a few weeks, to I thought I would add a solution to fix it.

It seems to happen when you get an updated version of a project on a machine that already have a package folder with older versions of the nuget libraries that have been updated in the latest version.

So the sure fix I found, is to redownload everything.

  • So delete the packages folder
  • Delete bin and obj from the project directory and rebuild.
