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.Utilities
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core (in Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core.dll)

protected virtual Encoding StandardErrorEncoding { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Text.Encoding
The Encoding of the response file.

Console-based output uses the current system OEM code page by default. Note that we should not use Console.OutputEncoding here since processes we run don't really have much to do with our console window (and also Console.OutputEncoding doesn't return the OEM code page if the running application that hosts MSBuild is not a console application).
