Command-line reference for Post-build events

You can do some pretty nifty things using post-build events.


I think there is a lot of untapped power there, though. You have the full capability to use ANYTHING that you can do at the cmd line, although I probably wouldn’t recommend defrag-ing your hard drive in a post-build event.


The full list of commands is available at Command-line reference A-Z.

One Response to Command-line reference for Post-build events

  1. Our most used function in a post build event is managing the different versions of app.config used by different testing tools. NUnit, TDD, and TestRunner all seem to want a different name in a different location. Our post build events automatically copy the app.config around to suit each tool’s taste.
