Trying To Use MSBuild.exe To Build Our Solution Is Failing

Summary

Describes how to build using MSBuild

Synopsis

InstallShield supports the Microsoft Build engine (MSBuild) included with the .NET Framework. MSBuild support enables you to build Visual Studio solutions with InstallShield projects in build lab environments where Visual Studio is not installed.

Discussion

To use MSBuild from the command line:

1. Open the Command Prompt window.

2. Change the directory to the one that contains MSBuild.exe:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\Version Folder\

3. Type the command-line statement to build the release build of the Visual Studio integration project. For example:
MSBuild.exe C:\Folder Containing My Visual Studio Solution\My Solution.sln /property:Configuration=Release
