Build .NET 4.5 projects with Bamboo

Can I build .NET 4.5 projects with Bamboo?

Write now it seems it is build using .NET 4.0. In some cases it's fine but when type definitions don't match in .NET 4.0 and .NET 4.5 compilation errors occur.

Is there any proper way to build .NET 4.5 projects and if no how soon it can appeat in future?

Hi mate,

Bamboo OnDemand is due for an upgrade to the Windows 8 SDK, which includes .NET 4.5. You can watch for the completion of this improvement here. Please be sure to vote too!



Hi @James Dumay [Atlassian],

do you have any update on BAM-12103?

The issue is open since pretty long. Please provide an update on that or close with won't fix.

Thank you,



Same issue once more here but with higher priority: Please vote to get some attention.

Additionally if you're building on anything earlier than Windows 8, such as Windows 7/Server/etc. if you install the .NET Framework 4.5 the msbuild 4.5 no longer is packaged in the .framework. According to some Googling I did you will supposedly have to install Visual Studio 2012 to get msbuild 4.5. I installed Vis Studio 2012 Express but it does not seem to include msbuild 4.5, so you need the full version of VS 2012.
