Details about Problem

Attempting to build symbol NuGet .snupkg package fails when using embedded license file with the PackageLicenseFile property.

NuGet product used: VS UI, dotnet pack

dotnet.exe --version: 2.1.500

VS version: 15.9.3

OS version: win10 v1809 (17763.134)

Detailed repro steps so we can see the same problem

  1. Build a C# netstandard2.0 project in Visual Studio 15.9.3 with the following properties set in the .csproj file:

    <None Include="LICENSE.txt" Pack="true" PackagePath="$(PackageLicenseFile)"/>
  1. Build generates the main .nupkg file successfully but fails to generate the .snupkg with the following error message:
    error NU5030: The license file 'LICENSE.txt' does not exist in the package.

  2. Expected build to generate both .nupkg and .snupkg files.

Verbose Logs

Please include verbose logs (NuGet.exe -verbosity detailed | dotnet.exe --verbosity diag | etc...)
