Deploying Service Fabric project locally: "FABRIC_E_IMAGEBUILDER_UNEXPECTED_ERROR"


Our company is starting with Service Fabric Microservices.

We install the Azure Service Fabric SDK as the MS documentation says ( We install it from de WebPI, open the powershell as admin, and run the "Set-ExecutionPolicy" comand. Later we install the Azure tools in Visual Studio and with that we could create an example project, an Stateless project.

Inmediatly after the project loaded all the dependencies, we "start" the project. (VS ran as admin) The VS sets the local cluster with 1 node and deploy the microservice. Until this point everythings was OK.

Then we create another Stateless project and we did the same things. But, this time we got and error in the output console of VS and in Service Fabric Explorer.

    ========== Deploy: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========

We reseted the cluster and tried to deploy the 2 examples again, but we got the same error for the two microservices.

I was looking for a solution in Google, MS Docs and here, but no one has a solution.

According to your log powershel can't get access to some process. As a very wide guess it could be a problem with an antivirus or your first debug session.

Have you tried not to debug(start vs), but to publish solution (Deploy project->right click-> publish) after cluster reset\restart?
