I need to understand how to batch build the projects in Visual Studio using a .BAT file. I do not want to open the Visual Studio IDE.
I have a solution file that contains a number of projects and a number of configurations. Currently the projects are configured to build using "Batch Build" correctly.
I would like to be able to launch this "Batch Build" programatically, wait for the process to complete then copy the built files.
I need a command that will do this for Visual Studio 2003, 2005, and 6.0. (C++ only).
It is okay if it does not do an actual batch build, but rather builds each config one at a time, as long as I can configure which configurations are built.
