Dear All,

I have found one issue while building WixProject.
In my wixproject file i have added one constant variable in


This $(cmdArg) value will be passed from the command line argument.

/p:cmdArg=""""" "E:\WorkFolder\BuildMSI.wixproj" /t:Rebuild

Following error is displayed after compiling wixproject.

*"E:\WorkFolder\BuildMSI.wixproj" (Rebuild target) (1) ->(Compile target)
*  candle.exe : error CNDL0288: The variable '&quot' with value '' was
previously declared with value ''. [E:\WorkFolder\BuildMSI.wixproj]*

Please help me how to solve this issue.

This issue occurs only when sequence of " passing as an argument.

Thanks in advance.
