GetWinFXPath Task

The GetWinFXPath task returns the directory of the current Microsoft .NET Framework runtime.

Parameter

Description

WinFXPath

Optional String output parameter.

Specifies the real path to the .NET Framework runtime.

WinFXNativePath

Required String parameter.

Specifies the path to the native .NET Framework runtime.

WinFXWowPath

Required String parameter.

Specifies the path to the Microsoft .NET Framework assemblies in the 32-bit Windows on Windows module on 64-bit systems.

If the GetWinFXPath task is executing on a 64-bit processor, the WinFXPath parameter is set to the path that is stored in the WinFXWowPath parameter; otherwise, the WinFXPath parameter is set to the path that is stored in the WinFXNativePath parameter.

The following example shows how to use the GetWinFXPath task to detect the native path to the .NET Framework runtime.

  <Target Name="GetWinFXPathTask">
    <GetWinFXPath
      WinFXNativePath="c:\WinFXNative" 
      WinFXWowPath="c:\WinFXWowNative" />
  </Target>
  <Import Project="$(MSBuildBinPath)\Microsoft.WinFX.targets" />
