Here is the target I use for .Net 2.0.

The echo lines indicate the properties you must set before calling it. The internally defined properties are optional based on the type of application you are compiling. many are for clickonce applications.

You should place all externally defined dlls in the ReferencePath before calling this.


  <target name="MsBuild">
    <property name="msBuild.exe" value="${framework::get-framework-directory('net-2.0')}/msbuild.exe" />
 
 
    <echo message="MsBuild ProjectFile: ${ProjectFile}"/>
    <echo message="MsBuild SolutionConfiguration: ${SolutionConfiguration}"/>
    <echo message="MsBuild OutputPath: ${OutputPath}"/>
    <echo message="MsBuild ReferencePath: ${ReferencePath}"/>
 
    <property name="ProductName" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="ApplicationVersion" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="ApplicationRevision" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="OutputPath" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="ReferencePath" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="InstallUrl" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="AssemblyName" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="SupportUrl" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="PublishRevision" value="" overwrite="false"/>
    <property name="MinimumRequiredVersion" value="" overwrite="false"/>
 
    <exec program="${msBuild.exe}">
      <arg value="${ProjectFile}" />
      <arg value="/target:rebuild" />
      <arg value="/p:Configuration=${SolutionConfiguration}" />
      <arg value="/p:PublisherName=&quot;${Publisher}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${ProductName!=''}" value="/p:ProductName=&quot;${ProductName}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${CurrentVersion!=''}" value="/p:ApplicationVersion=&quot;${CurrentVersion}.*&quot;" />
      <arg if="${PublishRevision!=''}" value="/p:ApplicationRevision=&quot;${PublishRevision}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${OutputPath!=''}" value="/p:OutputPath=&quot;${OutputPath}/&quot;" />
      <arg if="${ReferencePath!=''}" value="/p:ReferencePath=&quot;${ReferencePath}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${InstallUrl!=''}" value="/p:PublishUrl=&quot;${InstallUrl}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${InstallUrl!=''}" value="/p:InstallUrl=&quot;${InstallUrl}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${InstallUrl!=''}" value="/p:UpdateUrl=&quot;${InstallUrl}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${SupportUrl!=''}" value="/p:SupportUrl=&quot;${SupportUrl}&quot;" />
      <arg if="${MinimumRequiredVersion!=''}" value="/p:MinimumRequiredVersion=&quot;${MinimumRequiredVersion}&quot;" />
      <!--			<arg value="/p:AssemblyOriginatorKeyFile=&quot;${ArtifactsPath}/Certificates/Nexus2.pfx&quot;"/>
	<arg value="/p:ManifestKeyFile=&quot;${ArtifactsPath}/Certificates/Nexus2.pfx&quot;"/> -->
      <arg value="/verbosity:normal" />
    </exec>
  </target>
