Question:

I receive the error message ‘The artifact type “Loader File” is not applicable to Add-in “Startup Code/LDF”. The Add-In only applies to “Executable” project(s)’ when I set my Project Artifact to “Loader File”. What does this mean?

 

========================

Answer:

When switching a project’s artifact to “Loader File”, you will receive the message that ‘The artifact type “Loader File” is not applicable to Add-in “Startup Code/LDF”. The Add-In only applies to “Executable” project(s)’. The message can be ignored, as the project will still build and produce both a DXE and LDR file, as expected.
