1. .Net Framework v3.5 to compile or use any 3.5 Tasks
  2. .Net Framework v4.0 to compile or use any 4.0 Tasks
  3. BizTalk 2006 to use the MSBuild.ExtensionPack.BizTalk.dll tasks
  4. IIS7 to use the MSBuild.ExtensionPack.IIS7.dll tasks.
  5. StyleCop 4.7 to use the MSBuild.ExtensionPack.StyleCop.dll tasks Download
  6. FxCop 1.36 to use the FxCop task.
  7. SQL Server 2*** to use the MSBuild.ExtensionPack.Sql2*.dll tasks.


When using the MSI installer, the default installation path is
  • 3.5 --- %PROGRAMFILES%\MSBuild\ExtensionPack
  • 4.0 --- %PROGRAMFILES%\MSBuild\ExtensionPack\4.0
  • Note*: if you do not install the MSBuild Extension Pack to the default installation path, you will need to alter the MSBuild.ExtensionPack.tasks file as it refers to $(MSBuildExtensionsPath) which always refers to %PROGRAMFILES%.
A shortcut will be created in your Start Menu for quick access to this Help file and the Home Page:

Additionally, having zip files nested like 7 million layers deep is VERY annoying and slow to unpack. Can you please just switch to using regular folders in your zip files, please? -- And one installer, in the root directory, instead of four (which again, are several zip files deep) would also be nice... :-)

FYI: Installing only the 4.0 packs will not create any start menu shortcuts (I installed both, it wasn't until I installed the 3.5 (x64) one that any start menu items were created. I was able to copy the 4.0 chm file to the group manually (the installations otherwise appear to have succeeded and the files are in the appropriate places).
