How to diagnose build problems

For example, if Rider shows "Build succeed" message for a solution with errors, but the build fails when called from another IDE or from the command line, please take the following steps:

Visual Studio

1. Open options and set MSBuild project build output verbosity to 'Diagnostic'


2. Rebuild solution

3. Open 'Output' window and copy all output to a file



4. Open settings, enable 'Write log to file' option, and set verbosity to 'Diagnostic'


5. 'Rebuild Solution with Diagnostic', the log file will open automatically


6. Create a YouTrack issue or a Support Request and attach  two log files (Visual Studio's and Rider's) to it
