Location of $(MSBuildExtensionsPath32) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is there anyway I can see where $(MSBuildExtensionsPath32) points to?

    I tried echo $(MSBuildExtensionsPath32), echo $MSBuildExtensionsPath32, echo %MSBuildExtensionsPath32%, but it doesn't act like a environment variable like, for instance echo %windir% would.

    I also tried searching through the registry, to no avail.

     Thanks,

    Eric

  • Hi Eric,

    I just had the same question and found the anwser. It's usually this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild (on Windows 64 Bit)

    or C:\Program Files\MSBuild (on Windows 32 Bit)

  • Hi MSDN support. It's very very stupid to ask OP to resend a new request in a different place. It's not your job make issues goto the close state, OK? You should make the issue really closed, I mean really fixed. The MSDN forum is publicly to everyone, not your Corporation private forum. You guys don't have a correct service attitude.

  • You can set a new enviroment variable for MSBuildExtensionsPath32 and it will really works. The fact is:

    If the envvar MSBuildExtensionsPath32 exists, the specified value will be used; Else will use the MSBuild installation folder as its default value.

  • Appropriate thing to do would have been to answer the question, and then direct to the other forum for next time.

  • @Larcolais terrible response.  if you linked to a specific thread that answered the question i would understand, but you're basically asking us to dig through an entire forum.

    I 100% agree with this statement. This sort of thing is all over the MSDN forums and is why everybody goes to stack overflow instead.
