Teaching MSBuild

MSBuild comes only with a limited set of tasks, so it’s not very supprising to find a whole bunch of commnity tasks available.

The folks at tigris offer a nice bundle of tasks. There you’ll find a MSI installer. But unfortunatly the MSI doesn’t seem to install correctly, at least not when you’re not running an english version of visual studio.

To fix this problem, just go to [ProgramFilesFolder]\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Xml\Schemas. Here you’ll find a folder representing your current locale (most like not 1033. So just copy your folder and rename it to 1033. This time the MSI will succeed.
