Command line compilation of visual studio project files.

Hi,

I am using VS 2003 to build my (csharp) solution.

1. Is there a way to reveal the command line options that VS is using during
compilation of a project file, in order to build a batch file/makefile ?

2. Is there an option in the command line compiler that builds a VS project
?

3. If none of the above is true, is there a tool that parses the project
files and creates makefile(s) or batch files ?

Thanks

Emmanuel

devenv /?

Yup - use /Project

No need - see the above.

Why does not Microsoft reply to my post (although I am an MSDN subscriber) ?

1) You need to post with the email address associated with your MSDN
subscription.

2) What was wrong with my answer anyway?

Hi Jon,
1) You need to post with the email address associated with your MSDN
subscription. I did, but Microsoft tends to forget this kind of associations. Anyway,
today I discovered that I needed to re-associate my subscription with the
email address (nobody knows why. I never interrupted my subscription).

2) What was wrong with my answer anyway?

To which answer are you referring to ? Did I miss your post ?

Anyway do you have something to suggest about my initial post ? Any help
would be appreciated ...

Thanks
Emmanuel

So you really had your MSDN email address as Em******@newsgroup.nospam?

I don't know whether or not you missed it, but I replied to your
question 3 hours after you posted it.

I suggest you look it up on groups.google.com...

However, looking back I see that my answer to question 1 was incorrect,
as I'd misinterpreted the question. Fortunately, I don't think it
matters, because the answer to question 2 is the most important thing.
(Note that you want to use devenv, not csc - csc just compiles C#
files; there may be other things that are needed to build a project,
including other dependencies etc.)
