How to: Build Specific Targets in Solutions By Using MSBuild.exe
For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.
You can use MSBuild.exe to build specific targets of specific projects in a solution.
At the command line, type
MSBuild.exe <SolutionName>.sln, where
<SolutionName>corresponds to the file name of the solution that contains the target that you want to execute.
Specify the target after the /t switch in the format ProjectName:TargetName.
The following example executes the
Rebuild target of the
NotInSlnFolder project, and then executes the
Clean target of the
InSolutionFolder project, which is located in the
NewFolder solution folder.
msbuild SlnFolders.sln /t:NotInSlnfolder:Rebuild;NewFolder\InSolutionFolder:Clean
