After updating my VS license I rebuilt my solution an now I'm getting two errors:

Error 1 The "SdkToolsPath" parameter is not supported by the "GenerateResource" task. Verify the parameter exists on the task, and it is a settable public instance property.

Error 2 The "GenerateResource" task could not be initialized with its input parameters.

After searching the internet I found this solution:

but it did not correct the problem.

I can believe that updating my license caused this problem.

This application was written in VS 2005 and was upgraded to VS2013. It has been running in production for a couple of months with no issues.  Now when attempting to make a minor mod, I get these errors.  Any suggestions???

I'm not sure what you mean by "share a simple demo".  These errors occur when I try to rebuild the project.

I put a screen shot of the error on OneDrive, but I don't see how I can email you the link since I don't see your email address,  and when I tried to paste the link it this response I get a popup messages that says, "Body text cannot contain images or links until we are able to verify you account".
