Getting the following building with Visual Studio and Windows 10?
The "GenerateResource" task failed unexpectedly.
System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.Net\assembly\GAC_MSIL\Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v12.0\v4.0_12.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v12.0.dll' or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)
File name: 'file:///C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.Net\assembly\GAC_MSIL\Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v12.0\v4.0_12.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v12.0.dll' ---> System.NotSupportedException: An attempt was made to load an assembly from a network location which would have caused the assembly to be sandboxed in previous versions of the .NET Framework. This release of the .NET Framework does not enable CAS policy by default, so this load may be dangerous. If this load is not intended to sandbox the assembly, please enable the loadFromRemoteSources switch. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=155569 for more information.

This is a known issue, as a workaround, you can manually modify C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin\msbuild.config and add the following section:
<configuration>
<runtime>
<loadFromRemoteSources enabled="true"/>
</runtime>
</configuration>
