Building MSE

MSE requires additional tools to be installed in order to build:
  1. Code analysis on MSE is performed by FxCop 1.35 RC 1, which is available at http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/fxcop/
  2. Unit tests for MSE are developed and run using NUnit 2.2.7, which is available at http://www.nunit.org

Step 0:
Download the tools listed above.

Step 1:
Download the latest MSE sources on the Source Code page

Step 2:
Open the MSE.Settings.targets file. This file is located in the solution directory.

You will find the following tags for each of the tools listed above:
<FxCopExtDir> </FxCopExtDir>
<NUnitDir> </NUnitDir>
<ILMergeDir> </ILMergeDir>

Step 3:
Set these properties to the tools' installation directories. Be sure to include a trailing slash in each path.

For example:
<FxCopExtDir>C:\tools\FxCop\</FxCopExtDir>
<NUnitDir>C:\Program Files\NUnit-Net-2.0 2.2.7\bin\</NUnitDir>
<ILMergeDir>C:\Program Files\Microsoft\ILMerge\</ILMergeDir>

Note: You will need to include the bin folder in the NUnitDir path.

Step 4:
Close and reopen the solution, when inside the VS IDE, to pick up the new tool locations.

Step 5:
Build - note under the Verification Scripts folder, there is a build.cmd script you can use if you want to build from the command line. See Running Verification Scripts for more info.
