XAML Build fails in TFS 2015 RC: Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ or one of its dependencies.

Mucking around TFX2015RC throws up some surprises.  Creating a new build XAML build definition / loading an old XAML definition will result in a cryptic build error.

Cannot Build

The current fix?  Install VS2015RC on the box – minimum installation options should suffice (unless you encounter that weird installation bug that prevents you from doing that).

build success

Hope that Microsoft packages that DLL into TFS directly, rather than required an entire install.  Microsoft, are you seeing this???
