What is the meaning of Configuration in command line while generating a build.

Post by kumprave5 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:08 pm

What is the meaning of p:Configuration=Release in the below command and what options we have to replace Release.
path\to\MSBuild.exe "path\to\SolutionName.sln /p:Configuration=Release /t:Clean;Build


I am using below command but it throws error (The specified solution configuration "new | x86" is inavlid)
MSBuild.exe "C:\\Workshop.sln" /p:Configuration=new /t:Clean,Build

If possible,please provide example. Thank you so much.

Configuration is likely to be "Debug" or "Release" and the options depend on the defined configurations found in the solution file. Since we're likely referring to Ranorex you can see the options by invoking Properties on one of your test projects and you'll find the Configuration choices under the Application tab.

Thank you so much for the response. Actually, I am new to Ranorex so, if possible can you show me any example referring to your words "invoking properties" and "you'll find the Configuration choices under the Application tab." That will be great help.

Hi,

I assume the project properties are meant.
