Building with msbuild

Jul 15, 2008 at 12:31 PM

Hi.  I'm trying to automate some builds of stsdev-generated site definitions and other features.  I first tried to just use msbuild and call the ReleaseBuild target (or in fact any target), but no targets actually seem to be compiling my code into the assembly dll, so the "refresh" step of the stsdev part of the build ends up crashing.  As a workaround, I am able to use devenv.exe and specify the same build target, but I'd like to perform this on a machine without Visual Studio, so using msbuild would be nicer.  Can someone give me some pointers about how to get a build to occur solely via a call to msbuild?

thanks!
