IBuildEngine4 Interface

This interface extends IBuildEngine to provide a mechanism allowing tasks to share data between task invocations.

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)

public interface IBuildEngine4 : IBuildEngine3, 
	IBuildEngine2, IBuildEngine
