dotnet build vs publish on Azure DevOps

0 votes

I have a console app for .NET Core 2.0. 

I can successfully create, distribute, and operate this software locally. 

In Azure DevOps, I can successfully create and publish this app. 

However, I am unable to launch the finished product if I construct the app in Azure DevOps. I tried creating in Azure DevOps using:

dotnet build -c Release -r win-x64 -o app

When I run:

dotnet publish -c Release -r win-x64 -o app

The System.*.dll files and other files are included, however, I still receive the same files. 

This time, I've seen that MyApp.exe runs successfully and functions as intended.

Why does dotnet build... function locally, but when I run it in Azure DevOps, I don't seem to get the same behavior? 

I feel as though I must use dotnet publish. 

The resulting.zip file grows from 500kb to 30MB, which is my problem. 

This difference is significant.
