MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Build.Framework
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Framework (in Microsoft.Build.Framework.dll)

bool IsRunningMultipleNodes { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the system is running in multi-processor mode, false otherwise.

The build engine is in single-processor mode (IsRunningMultipleNodes = false) when it is initialized with the number of CPUs equal to 1 and the build engine is not a child engine. The build engine is in multi-processor mode (IsRunningMultipleNodes = true) when it is initialized with a number of CPUs greater than 1, or when the build engine is a child engine.
