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="">
<Import Project="FreeToDev.MSBuildTasks.tasks"/>
     <ProjectsToBuild Include="C:\MyVB6Project.vbp">
     <ProjectsToBuild Include="C:\MyVB6Project2.vbp"/>
<Target Name="Execute">
     <BuildVB6 Projects="@(ProjectsToBuild)"/>

Not sure what you mean.

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

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.
