Katte sang 21 Reputation points

I am working on .net 3.5 windows applications. When I build the applicaiton from VS IDE, I am able to generate the .msi file. But when I am using devenv command, it was not generated. Below is the command I am using it from command prompt. Please anyone let me know how to fix it.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" "D:\Projects\MySolution\MySolution.sln" /Rebuild

    There is a utility (DisableOutOfProcBuild.exe) that sets a registry key in HKCU that enables devenv to succcessfully build an installer project from the command line. See below for the use of this utility and a successful command line build.
