Batch Build Dialog Box 

Use this dialog box to build multiple project configurations all at one time. You can decide, for example, to build every project configuration of a project with one command. You can access this dialog box from the Build menu.

Check the Project Configurations to Build

Each entry includes the following fields:

Project

Displays names of projects in the current solution. Multiple entries for the same project can appear, once for each project configuration. All entries for all projects are listed in a single flat list.

Configuration

Displays the kind of project build specified by the selected solution configuration (Solution Config).

Platform

Displays the name of the platform on which the project will run.

Solution Config

Displays the solution build configuration that will provide context as this kind of project configuration is built for the specified platform. For example, suppose project P1 depends upon resources from another project, P2. The solution configuration will specify that the project configuration of P1 for this platform be built, and that the project configuration of P2 that will provide the resources needed by P1 also be built.

To change a solution configuration, use the Configuration Manager Dialog Box to edit the solution configuration or create a new one. After you have changed a solution configuration, click Rebuild in this dialog box to batch build all the project configurations.

Build

Specifies whether or not to include in the batch build the project configuration specified.

Buttons
