I'm getting the following error after I reinstalling PostSharp.
"Error: Target 'CopyFilesToOutputDirectory', a dependency of target 'PostSharp30ChangeAppConfig', not found. ".
How do I solve this problem?

    The "CopyFilesToOutputDirectory" target is the standard target from the Microsoft .NET build system. Please make sure that in your csproj file the "Import" line for PostSharp.targets is after the "Import" line for Microsoft.CSharp.targets or any other Microsoft build targets.

    By default, installing the PostSharp NuGet package should add the "Import" line in the correct place. However, it looks like something went wrong in your case.
