Enterprise Windows Features and flexible ARA

Using the Windows SDK as a pre-packaging tool to create a release package from within BuildMaster allows you to easily add built-in operation to any deployment plan.

This tutorial pulls files from Github, and then uses the MS-Build properties to create a release package for a .NET applicaion.

Built-In Operations include:

  • Build MSBuild Project –Builds a project or solution using MSBuild.
  • Sign Binary –Signs .exe or .dll files using an installed code signing certificate.
  • Write Assembly Versions –Updates AssemblyVersion, AssemblyFileVersion, and AssemblyInformationalVersion  Attributes (in AssemblyInfo source files).
  • XDT Transform –Performs an XDT transform on a configuration file.

  2. Restart the BuildMaster Service (Admin > Service).
  3. Restart the BuildMaster Web Application (Admin > All Settings > Save).
  4. Verify that the new extension has been loaded (Admin > Extensions)
