TFS 2013 Throws Lib2GitSharp Error During Build/Deploy (Intermittent)

For a while now, I have been having an issue with Team Foundation Server build/deploy process throwing the following error intermittently:

Unhandled Exception: System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'LibGit2Sharp.Core.NativeMethods' threw an exception. ---> System.BadImageFormatException: An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B)
at LibGit2Sharp.Core.NativeMethods.git_threads_init()
at LibGit2Sharp.Core.NativeMethods.LibraryLifetimeObject..ctor()
at LibGit2Sharp.Core.NativeMethods..cctor()
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---
at LibGit2Sharp.Core.NativeMethods.RemoveHandle()
at LibGit2Sharp.Core.NativeMethods.LibraryLifetimeObject.Finalize()
Exception Message: MSBuild error 255 has ended this build. You can find more specific information about the cause of this error in above messages. (type BuildProcessTerminateException) Exception Stack Trace: at System.Activities.Statements.Throw.Execute(CodeActivityContext context) at System.Activities.CodeActivity.InternalExecute(ActivityInstance instance, ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager) at System.Activities.Runtime.ActivityExecutor.ExecuteActivityWorkItem.ExecuteBody(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager, Location resultLocation)

This problem is very intermittent and it can be bypassed by simply retrying the build. Has anyone else run into this? Any solutions?

We have now gotten to the bottom of this issue after debugging it with Manoj and customer support. It affected gated checkin of continuous delivery of Azure deployments as part of the build process when using the Azure SDK 2.5 or older. The workaround is to add /p:GenerateBuildInfoConfigFile=false to the msbuild arguments in your build definition. We are working on updating the build VM in production, but that will take 24-48 hours to propagate to all build pools.

Adding msbuild argument

If you have VS installed on your build server, make sure you have opened it and licensed it. by @Phill
