Description Aaron Sky 2015-07-27 15:01:02 UTC
Builds are failing on latest stable of XS when trying to build code with C# 6.0 features. What version of MSBuild does XS on Windows use, what is its path, and if there is one, what is the plan for supporting and/or using Microsoft Build Tools 2015?
Comment 1 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2015-07-29 14:32:00 UTC
I was recently looking into this, and it appears that we hard-code a preference for tools version 12 (VS2013): https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/blob/master/main/src/core/MonoDevelop.Core/MonoDevelop.Projects.Formats.MSBuild/MSBuildProjectService.cs#L509 VS2015 is tools version 14.
Comment 2 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2015-07-30 11:12:49 UTC
Michael pointed out that this can be worked around by adding this to your csproj: <PropertyGroup Condition="'$(Platform)' != 'Unix'"> <CscToolPath>$(MSBuildProgramFiles32)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin</CscToolPath> </PropertyGroup> Alternatively, you can set a CscToolPath system environment variable to the expanded value of that expression (which I have done, and it's working great now).
