Simple build of a VS2012 solution using a batch file

Hi Experts,

     I am trying to FINALLY automate our build process.  I am able to build our solution using the below command in a batch file:

devenv "C:\Projects\MySolution.sln" /build Release /out "C:\Build.Log"

How can I give the user (QA folks) running the batch file a simple pass/fail message instead of the lines of warnings and other messages?

I am looking for something like:

set success = devenv "C:\Projects\MySolution.sln" /build Release /out "C:\2012Build.Log"

if success < 0
(
      ECHO "Solution 'MySolution' failed to build.  Please check log file for details"
)
else
(
     set success = devenv "C:\Projects\MySolution2.sln" /build Release /out "C:\2012Build.Log"

     if success < 0
     (
           ECHO "Solution 'MySolution2' failed to build.  Please check log file for details"
     )
     else
     (
           ECHO "Build process has completed without any errors!"
     )
)

Thanks in advance!

Run devenv.com instead of devenv.exe and use the ERRORLEVEL in a IF statement to check whether it compiled ok.
