Is it possible to get DEVENV to use the 64-bit MSBUILD.exe? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a solution that contains only 64-bit projects.

    If I do this:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" amd64

    msbuild MySolution.sln /p:configuration=release /p:platform=x64 /t:rebuild

    I get a 64-bit MSBUILD process, a 64-bit CL.exe process, and a 64-bit LINK.exe process, and all is good!

    If I do this:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" amd64

    DEVENV "MySolution.sln" /build "Release|x64"

    I get a 32-bit MSBUILD process, a 64-bit CL.exe, and a 64-bit LINK.exe

    My question: Is it possible to have devenv use the 64-bit MSBUILD that ships with VS 2015 to do builds?

    I can't find the way to do it. MSBuild has some options that don't exist for devenv. We recommend using msbuild instead of devenv when you build your solution or project.
