Excerpt

This plugin allows you to use MSBuild to build .NET and Visual Studio projects.

Usage

To use this plugin, specify the location directory of MSBuild.exe on Jenkin's configuration page. The MSBuild executable is usually situated in a subfolder of C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework. The Visual Studio 2017 Community version of "msbuild.exe" is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\MSBuild\15.0\Bin\" If you have multiple MSBuild versions installed, you can configure multiple executables.

Then, on your project configuration page, specify the name of the build file (.proj or .sln) and any command line
arguments you want to pass in. The files are compiled to the directory where Visual Studio would put them as well.

Useful Info:

  • The path location is as instance: 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\msbuild.exe'

Troubleshooting

  • When using Command Line Arguments, bear in mind that special characters are treated like in Unix, so they will need to be escaped using the backslash.
