MSBuild Custom Publishing not Transforming Web.config files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using this solution to perform my Publishing via MSBuild and Jetbrains TeamCity:

    For the most part, this works just fine in terms of getting the content published, however, I am encountering one problem with the solution in that it is not performing my Web.config transformations!

    Every other aspect of Publishing is working according to expectations excluding the Web.config transformations.

    I am using MSBuild that ships with Visual Studio 2013.

    Please advise as to what I may be doing wrong.

  • Hi vs2015junkie,

    If you want the transform to be executed, you have to specify a build configuration for msbuild command. Code below is for your reference.
