Post build event for the entire solution?

P: n/a

Hi,

Is it possible to add post build event to copy several fiels
after all project have been compiled?
I don't want to put it in one of the project post build event

Thanks.

Hi,

One possible way to do this is to add a dummy project to the solution and
set the build order in such a way that this dummy project is build at the end.
Add the post build event for this dummy project which you have created. This
will essentially work as a post build event for the entire solution.

It should be noted that in .NET 2.0, with the MSBUILD system, you will
be able to inject any task you want into any step in the process. If you
have the beta bits, you can play with it now. MSBUILD is going to be the
way that things are built (ASP.NET will certainly use it for dynamic page
compilation, and the C# and VB project files have been converted to MSBUILD
files).

Hope this helps.
