VCBUILD Command Line

The VCBUILD tool uses the following command line syntax to build Visual C++ projects and solutions.


VCBUILD [options] [project | solution] [config | $ALL]

options

Build options. For more information, see VCBUILD Options.

VCBUILD also reads options from the VCBUILD_DEFAULT_OPTIONS environment variable.

project

The name of a project file.

If the project parameter is not specified and only one .vcproj file is in the directory, the project specified by the .vcproj file is built.

solution

The name of a solution file.

config

The name of a project configuration to build; for example, DEBUG.

If no configuration is specified, and the VCBUILD_DEFAULT_CFG environment variable is set, the configuration it specifies is built. If it is not set, all configurations are built.

$ALL

A symbolic name that means build all configurations.

To cancel the build process, press CTRL+C or CTRL+BREAK.
