Hi @lprada

As far as I know, you can directly use MSBuild.exe without specifying the path.

May I kindly ask what error/issue you're currently facing?

I was able to call the executable, what I need right now is to put the path to the MSBuild.exe variable per enviroment. Something like this

- $Env:MSBUILD_PATH\MSBuild.exe 

but this does not work.

Hi @lprada,

I see. I believe you'll have to programmatically add the path to Windows ENV.
Here's what I found that may be relevant to your use case. - https://gist.github.com/nicolasdao/b1623cb3220be3b6dc8fe04b2b2bfe32?permalink_comment_id=3997314#gistcomment-3997314
