This page contains reference information for the MSBuild Build Runner fields.

Before setting up the build configuration to use MSBuild as the build runner, make sure you are using an XML build project file with the MSBuild runner. To build a Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or 2008 solution file please use the sln2005 or sln2008 runner (since TeamCity 5.1 use Visual Studio (sln) for both Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 solution files).

General Build Runner Options

Option Description
Build runner Select MSBuild from the drop-down list.
Build File Path Specify the path to the solution to be built, relative to the Build Checkout Directory. For example:
Working Directory Specify the path to the build working directory.
MSBuild version Select the framework you want to run - either .NET Framework (2.0, 3.5 or 4.0) or Mono xbuild.
MSBuild ToolsVersion Specify here the version of tools that will be used to compile (equivalent to /toolsversion: commandline argument).
MSBuild supports compilation to older versions, thus you may set MSBuild version as 4.0 with MSBuild ToolsVersion set to 2.0 to produce .NET 2.0 assemblies while running MSBuild from .NET Framework 4.0. For more information refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb383796(VS.100).aspx
Run platform From the drop-down list select the desired execution mode on a x64 machine.
Targets Enter targets separated by spaces. A target is an arbitrary script for your project purposes.
Command line parameters Specify any additional parameters for msbuild.exe
Reduce test failure feedback time Use the following option to instruct TeamCity to run some tests before others.

NUnit Test Settings

NUnit tests settings Use this section to specify NUnit parameters
NUnit runner From the drop-down list select a version of the NUnit runner to use.
.NET Runtime From the Platform drop-down select the desired execution mode on a x64 machine. Supported values are: Auto (MSIL) (default), x86 and x64. From the Version drop-down select the desired .NET Framework version.
Run tests from Specify the .Net assemblies, where the NUnit tests to be run are stored. Multiple entries are comma-separated; usage of MSBuild wildcards is enabled.
In the following example, TeamCity will search for the tests assemblies in all project directories and run these tests.
All these wildcards are specified relative to path that contains the solution file.
Do not run tests from Specify .Net assemblies that should excluded from the list of found assemblies to test. Multiple entries are comma-separated; usage of MSBuild wildcards is enabled.
In the following example, TeamCity will omit tests specified in this directory.
All these wildcards are specified relative to path that contains the solution file.
NUnit categories include Specify NUnit categories of tests that should be run. Multiple entries are comma-separated.
NUnit categories exclude Specify NUnit categories that should be excluded from the tests to be run. Multiple entries are comma-separated.

MSTest Settings

Option Description
Run MSTests Check the box to enable running MSTest tests. If the option is not checked only NUnit test runner will be used.
Path to MSTest.exe A path to MSTest.exe file. By default Build Agent will autodetect MSTest installation. You may use %system.MSTest.8.0%, %system.MSTest.9.0% or %system.MSTest.10.0% to refer to build agent auto-detected MSTest.exe.
List assembly files A list of assemblies to run MSTests on. Will be mapped to /testcontainer:file argument.
MSTest run configuration file Specify a MSTest run configuration file to use (/runconfig:file).
MSTest metadata Enter a value for /testmetadata:file argument.
Testlist from metadata to run Every line will be translated into /testlist:line argument.
Test Names of the tests to run. This option will be translated to the series of /test: arguments
Check Add /unique commandline argument to add /unique argument to MSTest.exe
Results file Enter a value for /resultsfile:file commandline argument.
Additional commandline parameters Enter an additional commandline parameters for MSTest.exe

Please, note that tests run with MSTest are not reported on-the-fly.
For more details on configuring MSTests, please refer to the MSTest.exe Command-Line Options
