ESRIRegAsm.exe sometimes generates empty ecfg files. This happens when we are building one of our VS 2008 solution files on our build computer. It happens on different projects, and it happens on a mix of C++ and C# projects. When running ESRIRegAsm.exe from the command line it works fine on the same dll that failed when building the solution file. Attaching an empty ecfg file.

ESRIRegAsm is called in the Post-Build Event for C++ projects and in Target AfterBuild for C# projects

Post-Build Event:
"%CommonProgramFiles%\ArcGIS\bin\ESRIRegAsm.exe" "$(TargetPath)"  /v:10.0 /p:Desktop /s

AfterBuild Target:
<Target Name="AfterBuild">
    <Exec WorkingDirectory="$(CommonProgramFiles)\ArcGIS\bin" Command="esriRegasm.exe &quot;$(TargetPath)&quot; /v:10.0 /p:Desktop /s" />
