MSBuild Community Tasks

What is MSBuild Community Tasks?

The MSBuild Community Tasks Project is an open source project for MSBuild tasks.

What is MSBuild?
A build platform needs the ability to execute any number of actions during the build process. MSBuild uses tasks to perform these actions. A task is a unit of executable code used by MSBuild to perform atomic build operations. MSBuild looks for tasks in several locations. The first location is in files with the extension .OverrideTasks stored in the .NET Framework directories. Tasks in these files override any other tasks with the same names, including tasks in the project file. The second location is in files with the extension .Tasks in the .NET Framework directories. If the task is not found in either of these locations, the task in the project file is used.


The primary executable is named msbuild.community.tasks.dll. The setup package generally installs about 2 files and is usually about 1.73 MB (1,815,552 bytes).
