I installed the profile builder 1.3 . By default it is installe in c:\Program files\MSBuild\WebPRofileBuilder. Now I am following the documetnation (.rtf) file to create an ASP.NET Web Application project. In step 7 I pressed the Refresh once where I get this warning:

"BuildWebProfile" task failed unexpectedly" excepton. System.ArgumentNullException: Sting reference not set to an instance of String.

The second time I press Refresh, I see warning - "BuildWebProfile" task failed".

I am using VS 2008.

I get the same error. I've tried everything . We are 4 people using subversion and the others get it to work, so it's not the <profile> node. I'm using win7 x64 as are some of the others. VS 2008, as are all of the others. We really want to use this but if I can't find a solution we'll have to find another way.
