MSBuild Shell Extension lets you build .NET projects without ever opening Visual Studio or the command prompt. MSBuild targets can be executed from your favourite file system tool like Windows Explorer or Total Commander.
To be able to parameterise a build script, MSBuild has implemented properties. A property is a simple key/value type, which can be used from multiple locations in the scripts.
It is possible to write your own MSBuild tasks. This can be extremely useful if you want to integrate some of your own tools with MSBuild or if you need to do stuff which is not yet supported by MSBuild.
