PostSharp4FE is not working with VS2008 SP1 Beta

Hi

I just downloaded the latest postsharp4fe and tried to work with VS2008 SP1Beta things are not working.  Initally I had compilation errors for PostSharp4FE project I could fix the API that got changed in the recent SP1.  Now I could compile all the projects of PostSharp4FE and could generate the dlls.

Now I created my own domain object class library project and setup the csproj and psproj files to use PostSharp4FE: The project build itself was failing.  I ran the PostSharp.exe command from command line and got the following exception:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Is there any plan for updating the code to work with SP1 Beta?

Thanks

Hi Kesav,

yes. However, there is a holiday coming up soon, so I do not know when I will get this done.

I'm dedicated to bring EF to Silverlight. So I will start work on it as soon as I'm back.

The error you are showing does not necessarily have anything to do with SP1 beta though. It seems you are not passing the correct parameters. Did it work correctly before?
