Defining OuputPath for VS.NET solution

I need to build several solution files each comprising many projects, and want to control the ouput folder that each project builds to.

Its not practical to ensure that all developers remember to set a standard outputpath within each individual project so I want to override the project settings.

Can I do this with the "Make VS.NET" action? For example, can I define a common ouput folder for all projects in a solution e.g. "C:\Deliverables"?

It is on the list to add support for that. For now, you would need to update the individual project files (one approach would be to use the Process Files action in conjunction with a Run Script step that uses the MSXML parser [1] to update the project files).

[1] See this thread or the XML.bld sample
