ProcessorArchitecture Class

ProcessorArchitecture Class

Determines the correct tool in the Toolset that MSBuild should use, based on the current system's processor architecture.

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.

The Toolset contains several tools, such as compilers, that are used in different situations. ProcessorArchitecture determines which of these tools should be used based on the current system's architecture or CPU, such as x86, AMD64, and so forth.

For more information on Toolsets, see Standard and Custom Toolset Configurations.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
