    Hi,

     MSBuild:  Visual Studio uses MSBuild to load and build managed projects. The project files in Visual Studio (.csproj,.vbproj, vcxproj, and others) contain MSBuild XML code that executes when you build a project by using the IDE. csproj files are msbuild files, and building in VS is just like building at the command line. If you start using MSBuild, and you want to do more custom things in your build process, get the MSBuild Community Tasks.

    NANT: If you prefer to write scripts, you could try Nant. It depends on more about your requirement.

    With regards
