So I have the code working locally, but in the quiz I am getting: error CS2008: No files to compile were specified

I am getting this error:

error CS2008: No files to compile were specified Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

The compiler works fine until I add the @description to the div, then it breaks.

Detail.cshtml
@{
    Layout = null;

    var title = "Super Mario 64";
    var description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
}

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>@title</h1>

        <h5>Description:</h5>
        <div>@description</div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Patrick,

Sorry about that! This error was being caused by a recent change in our system. Please try the code challenge again and let me know if you run into any further problems.

Thanks, James

James, thanks for the reply. I tried a few times and it didn't work, but when I came back later it worked perfectly.

:point_right: I pasted your code above directly into the challenge and it passed.

Try again?
