Building in VS 2005 works but in VB doesn't

I have a solution that builds properly in VS 2005 but I can't get it to build properly in Visual Build 6.2. When it fails it gives an error related to DistanTree.bat (post build script). I have noticed that if I do a build once in VB, let it fail, then do the exact same build again, it works!

I was thinking that the command line options might be different, but I can't see where in VS 2005 to look at the build time command line options.

Anyone have any ideas?

It sounds like an issue with Visual Studio when building from the command line (what the Make VS.NET action ultimately invokes to actually build a solution or project), since VBP doesn't process VS project build events itself.

By default, the VBP Make VS.NET action uses MSBuild to build VS2005 projects/solutions. Building in the VS2005 IDE is actually more like building with from the command-line, which the Make VS.NET also supports and might work when MSBuild doesn't.

If that doesn't help, you can check the 'Display command-line...' checkbox on the Options tab, rebuild the step, then copy/paste the msbuild/devenv command-line from the build output when opening a support incident w/ MS regarding the issue.
