# EnsureBclBuildImported pre-build check causing build errors in Visual Studio 2014 Update 4

After the recent update to Update 4 creating a new web application is by default causing a build error. The real error message is as follows:

This project references NuGet package(s) that are missing on this computer. Enable NuGet Package Restore to download them.  For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=317567.


Editing the project file revealed the following line:

<Target Name="EnsureBclBuildImported" BeforeTargets="BeforeBuild" Condition="'\$(BclBuildImported)' == ''">

I tried installing the Microsoft.Bcl.Build through Nuget, but that installed version 1.0.21 instead of 1.0.14 and further the new version did not have the required tools\Microsoft.Bcl.Build.targets file.
