Plugin Information

View MSBuild on the plugin site for more information.

This plugin allows you to use MSBuild to build .NET projects. To use this plugin, specify the location of MSBuild.exe on Jenkin's configuration page. The MSBuild executable is usually situated in a subfolder of C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework. 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'
