Default NAnt - External Program Failed

when i execute the below command for fxcop through nant, i get build succeeded message but with 1 non-fatal error and 3 warnings.

<exec program="C:\Program Files\Microsoft FxCop 1.35\fxcopcmd.exe" commandline="/p:D:\test\fxcoptest.fxcop /f:D:\test\abc.dll /f:D:\test\def.dll /f:D:\test\ghi.dll /o:D:\test\fxcoptest.xml /forceoutput" failonerror="false"/>

[exec] External Program Failed: C:\Program Files\Microsoft FxCop 1.35\fxcopcmd.exe (return code was 8)
[exec] Could not load file: 'D:\test\abc.dll'
[exec] Could not load file: 'D:\test\def.dll'
[exec] Could not load file: 'D:\test\ghi.dll'

i want to avoid these errors and warnings. if anyone knows the solution, please respond.

You have set failonerror to false for the exec task, so any failures by the exec will get logged as warnings. I don't think there is a way to avoid this.

Why not use the NAnt fxcop tasks that's built in? This might help to resolve the problems.
