Building MSBee

MSBee requires additional tools to be installed in order to build:
  1. Code analysis on MSBee is performed by FxCop 1.35 RC 1, which is available at http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/fxcop/
  2. Unit tests for MSBee are developed and run using NUnit 2.2.7, which is available at http://www.nunit.org
  3. The MSBee installer is built with WiX 2.0.3719, which is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wix/

Step 0:
Download the tools listed above.

Step 1:
Download the latest MSBee sources on the Source Code page

Step 2:
Open the MSBee.Settings.targets file. This file is located in the solution directory.

You will find the following tags for each of the tools listed above:
<FxCopExtDir> </FxCopExtDir>
<NUnitDir> </NUnitDir>
<WiXDir> </WiXDir>

Step 3:
Set these properties to the tools' installation directories. Be sure to include a trailing slash in each path.

For example:
<WiXDir>C:\tools\WiX\2.0.3719\</WiXDir>

Step 4:
Close and reopen the solution, when inside the VS IDE, to pick up the new tool locations.

Step 5:
Build
