build.ps1 not executing

See original GitHub issue


I’ve tried to execute build.ps1, following the “Getting started” page (

It seems to fail on line 50 of build.ps1. First error being: "Join-Path : cannot bind argument to parameter ‘Path’ because it is null.

Writing $TOOLS_DIR = Join-Path $PS_Script_Root "tools" instead of $TOOLS_DIR = Join-Path $PSScriptRoot "tools" allowed the script to execute.

I don’t know about powershell or cake, but it looks like it is just the underscores missing, right ?

Then we should probably remove that and use this code

    $PSScriptRoot = Split-Path $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path -Parent

You are correct, I’m running powershell version 2.0
