How do we ignore solutions in a build? We could specify only the ones we want to build, but depending on your weighting of include/exclude solutions, this could be costly. So here’s how to ignore solutions using MSBuild:

 

<Project ToolsVersion="4.0"
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003"
DefaultTargets="Default">

<ItemGroup>
<ProjectReference Include=".\**\AV2014.sln" Exclude=".\**\DBSolutionToIgnore.sln"/>
</ItemGroup>

<Target Name="Default">
<MSBuild Projects="@(ProjectReference)" Targets="Rebuild"/>
</Target>

</Project>
