In Verastream Host Integrator (VHI) Web Builder, when attempting to generate a web application project, the build may fail, with the end of the build log indicating GenerateSource or GenerateSolution cannot be found.

To resolve this issue, complete the following steps:

This problem occurs if a previous installation of Verastream Host Integrator was in a different folder location than the current installation.
For example, you may currently have 64-bit version 7.5 installed to C:\Program Files\Attachmate\Verastream but previously had 32-bit version 7.1.x installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Attachmate\Verastream.
