More Client Center Build error quesitons

Hey, follow up questions on build errors

I've downloaded the source code but cannot build solution. Have VS 2013, 2012, 2008, and 2005, Solution opens in anything after 2008. I used MSDN to install VS 2010 hoping to find the correct Framework to work from. Not a lot of clues on the build environment, dependencies or customization and plugin stubs. The Proj file appears to reference .net 3.5 and uses 2006 references to namespaces.

I don't have a working code base to start with, so I pulled down the open source and commented out the Nuget.targets and Signing Cert criteria. I have not been able to resolve references for Ribbon and namespaces for Ribbon objects. I had hoped your Project would provide pointers, since Microsoft seems to have moved components across time, changing best practices.

I’m looking for simple guidance on a compliable baseline. Having consulted with a number of local "experts" I now have 3 sets of unsuccessful solutions. What are the product prerequisite products and recommended build environment. An overview on removal of customization, plugins, and other out omitted code would help. Easy to restore commented objects for customization, if I have a working baseline. This would help anyone whose experience doesn't include open source projects, has limited experience with C#, or works with prescribed corporate .Net environments.

I was able to build and deploy Collection Commander, but the Client Center code seems less complete.

The Project was initially made with VS 2010 but now I'm using VS 2013. The target Framework is ".NET Framework 4".

The references you need are:

-Stema Navigation Pane
http://navigationpane.codeplex.com/

-Microsoft Ribbon for WPF
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11877

-WPF Toolkit
http://wpf.codeplex.com/releases/view/40535

-SCCM Client Center Automation Library
http://sccmclictrlib.codeplex.com/

-Seanau Icon Set 2011 (License only ?!)
http://www.seanau.com/icon_collections.htm

But you can take the referenced .DLL's from an installed Client Center. All DLL's are in the same Directory as the executable.

If you want to customize the Setup, check:

Note: Client Center is just a User-Interface, all the logic behind is in http://sccmclictrlib.codeplex.com/
