OutputPath contains double path separator leading to NU5019 in nuget pack

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

.NET 8 Preview 4 SDK Requires: A .NET SDK project with multi-targeting (TargetFrameworks plural) and a custom .nuspec The OutputPath property ends up with a double slash (path separator) because PlatformName is undefined. Nuget pack doesn’t like the double-slash, leading to a NU5019 (file not found) error.

To Reproduce

Here’s a gist:

Copy the three files to a local directory and build it with dotnet build Output:


C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk\8.0.100-preview.4.23260.5\Sdks\NuGet.Build.Tasks.Pack\buildCrossTargeting\NuGet.Build.Tasks.Pack.targets(221,5): error NU5019: File not found: 'b
in\\Debug\foo.txt'. [C:\throwaway\foo2\foo.csproj]

Exceptions (if any)

Note that this repros only with multitargeting. If you change TargetFrameworks to TargetFramework (singular), then it works. The problem seems to be that PlatformName is not set in the multitargeting case (it should default to AnyCpu) so OutputPath gets initialized with a double path separator.

Thanks folks for the report, this was an SDK regression. I’ve sent #33003 to fix it.

@dsplaisted NuGet thinks this is related to the output path changes, can you check?
