msbuild noob

SO I am trying to write an msbuild file and I am reading this:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/ms171451(en-US,VS.80).aspx

What should the file name be? it does not say?
project.xml?

I want to have tasks in it, etc.

netsql,

For C# it is csproj, for vb it is vbproj.

However, I think that any file that has an extension that ends in "proj"
is automatically processed by MSBUILD, although I think you can specify the
project file, so to that end, you can give it whatever extension you want.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

If you have Visual Studio 2005, the easiest way to do this is to have
Visual Studio do it for you. If you are deploying a web project, you
may use the Web Deployment Project to do this for you. It is a seperate
download located here:

I recently compiled a list of resources relating to MSBuild:

Hope this helps.

I have a need to generate both the DLL version of my application and an EXE version. I would like to build both of them with a single call "build". One of the ideas I have come up with is to fire off MSBuild in the PostBuildEvent of the project. I think it may work however I am having some command line issues with msbuild. The project I have is setup to build the DLL version of the app by default. In the project's PostBuildEvent I...

I've got a source tree with over 100 projects, some depending on others and I'd like to set this up on an automated nightly build, or where devs can do private builds of the entire source tree to verify their code integration into the build before they check in. When I worked at Microsoft, we used CoreXt to do this. Does MSBuild support this sort of build management? Or should I look elsewhere like NAnt. -- Jaan
