When attempting to compile BrightstarDB from the source currently on the develop branch you may run into problems compiling the BrightstarDB.CodeGeneration project where the compiler reports the following message:

The type 'System.Object' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Runtime, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.

Don’t worry! The fix for this is simple. You just need to install the updated version of the .NET 4.5.2 Developer Pack.

There is a description of the problem in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article and download links are provided in KB article 2901951.
