Hi,

Anyone had experience of integrating VB6 projects into RTC?

Looking to see if i can use msbuild and configurate the RTC VS build defenition to achieve this.

<Project DefaultTargets="Execute" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003">
<Import Project="FreeToDev.MSBuildTasks.tasks"/>
<ItemGroup>
     <ProjectsToBuild Include="C:\MyVB6Project.vbp">
          <OutDir>c:\bob</OutDir>
     </ProjectsToBuild>
     <ProjectsToBuild Include="C:\MyVB6Project2.vbp"/>
</ItemGroup>
<Target Name="Execute">
     <BuildVB6 Projects="@(ProjectsToBuild)"/>
</Target>
</Project>

Accepted answer

I have also noticed that there is Visual Studio build definition. See this link:

I think you should be able to use the ANT exec task to run any executable build and compile tool from the ANT script. Krzysztof's suggestion is also a good one, but once you need to do more automation/tasks than what is supported there you will end up having to use ANT anyway.

Hello gk,
You can try configuring command line build definition for that. You will find more info on https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.team.build.doc%2Ftopics%2Ftcreatebuilddefinition.html

Hi,


Not sure what you mean.

Are you saying I can use command line definition to execute msbuild script?

Thanks
