    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Hi Matt,

    It does not tell me how to configure MSBUILD in my csproj file. I edited my proj file like belowm but nuthing is working

     <Target Name="AfterBuild">
        <Message Text="After build"></Message>
        <Exec Command="&quot;C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\12.0\Bin\msbuild.exe&quot; $(MSBuildProjectName).csproj /t:Publish /p:Configuration=Release /p:Platform=&quot;AnyCPU&quot;" ContinueOnError="false" />

    it keeps creating mutliple msbuild.exe at a time
