Consider the following scenario. You have a database project that contains the FileGroups property. In Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Database Professionals, you create a project template for a database project (.dbproj). In this scenario, when you try to use the project template, you receive the following error message:
Failed to retrieve msbuild property FileGroupFileNames from the project file.
The msbuild.exe tool does not handle imported properties correctly. Therefore, any property in a .user file cannot be moved manually to the project file and cannot be used as part of a template.
