HI all

I am using msbuild to compile my web application project. After
building the solution I get the following error message:
Server Error in '/Community' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: type
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of
the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more
information about the error and where it originated in the code.

If I build my solution in Visual Studio it works correctly. Therefore,
i am assuming this is an msbuild issue. Has anyone experienced this
before and does anyone have a resoution or any ideas?

Cheers, Paul
