Hello,

I'm using VS 2017 and not able to compile the following appendix projects:
- Appendix B
- Appendix C.AsyncInteroperability
The project solution files tries to load Microsoft.FSharp.Targets from MSBuildExtensionsPath32 pointing to "C:\Users\Riccardp\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_793a3687\Extensions\irjdvkrd.wl0".

Could you please provide a HowTo to get around this or update the solution files?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi, thank you for the message.

this is an old bug that was fixed with this commit
https://github.com/rikace/fConcBook/commit/5226695b446464f332996d5deeea30b47cc63e1d

However, I just found out that Manning is linking the web page of the book to an old version of the code.

I will speak with them today to be sure the link of the source code is bind to the git-hub repo

https://github.com/rikace/fConcBook

I am sorry for the inconvenient. Please use the above GitHub link to grab the latest versions of the code

Hi, thanks for your quick reply.
Your assumptions was right, I downloaded the source code from the bookshelf instead from github. Now I was able to compile all sources - allthough I got some warnings about binding conflicts and minor items. But for now I can start digging into your implementation and try to understand.
By the way - thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and experience!
