I am new to SharePoint 2013. I am using SharePoint server 2013 installed on one server and vs 2010 on my local PC. I have install the "WSPBuilder" to develop the web-parts on my local PC. I have develop the one test web-part. The web part is successfully build and generated .wsp file. But when I Right click on project -> WSPBuilder -> Delploy, then I am getting the below error.

"Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

Can any one help me to resolve this problem.

Since you do not have SharePoint on your development machine the wspbuilder will not be able to find it's dependent dll:s from SharePoint!

Is there anything stopping you from installing visual studio and wspbuilder on the SharePoint server?
