Could not resolve this reference

I'm trying to develop my app with appharbor, but when pushing it show message "Could not resolve this reference. Could not locate the assembly "DotParser". Check to make sure the assembly exists on disk." And this happens with most my references.
But I look at Nuget restore package log file and there all packages are downloaded and installed.
What could be a problem?
Thank you!

    I took a look and suspect there could be a couple of possible reasons for this issue, but most likely it's related to the directory structure which is a bit unusual. In particular, the application's solution file used to generate the NuGet restore graph is located in the input/root folder, while the project file being built is nested two folders under this.

    Can you perhaps try and move your solution file to the src directory and give this another shot? I suspect that will cause the packages to be restored to the referenced location.

    You may also want to try and clean your local directory while debugging, as you may have multiple packages folders locally that doesn't exist on AppHarbor. Using git you can remove all untracked files using a command such as git clean -fdx. Doing this might help reproduce the issue locally, but you may want to take a backup of the folder just in case it contains files or changes you need later on.

    Thank you for your answer!
    I tried to do this, but it doesn't work anyway. (now my .sln file in /src folder)
    I have such error with references again.
