Create Deployment Folder : Command Line

Mar 11, 2010 at 6:57 AM


Firstly, great  plug-in and app. Removes so many headaches.

I have a quick question regarding the "Create Deployment Folder" action in the Visual Studio context menu. This is great for creating the WSP and the setup.exe for installing the solution to Sharepoint, I was wondering if you could share the command line equivalent for this action. The reason I require this is because I use build scripts and do not particulary want to open Vusual Studio everytime I require a new build.

I am assuming that the action just calls the WSPBuilder.exe and passing through arguments, if this is correct, could you share this?

Thanks in Advance

Actually, I think the Build action may be the one you're interested in, rather than the Create Deployment Folder action.

But in any case, how about this:


"...\WSPBuilder.exe" -ProjectPath "somewhere" -SolutionPath "somewhere" -OutputPath "somewhere" -WSPName "something.wsp"

fyi. the manual in the documentation folder lists the commands:

C:\Program Files\WSPTools\WSPBuilderExtensions\Documentation\Documentation

in addition to command line, you can also specify params in a .config
