I've added the DXA 1.7 sources to an existing project and am getting the following error on Build. Any ideas?

Error CS2001 Source file 'C:\TridionCode\MyWebsites\Sdl.Web.Common..\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs' could not be found. Sdl.Web.Common C:\TridionCode\MyWebsites\Sdl.Web.Common\CSC 1 Active


I guess you didn't add all the sources in that case, when looking at the VS project file (https://github.com/sdl/dxa-web-application-dotnet/blob/release/1.7/Sdl.Web.Common/Sdl.Web.Common.csproj) you see a reference to:

<Compile Include="..\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs" />

Indicating that CommonAssemblyInfo.cs is located outside of the Sdl.Web.Common folder. You can find the file in question here:


It is nothing more than a shared assembly info for all projects/assemblies in DXA.
