In this short article, we would like to show how to install MSBuild.exe under Windows.

Simple steps:

  1. Install Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 - Community Edition,
    Direct download:
    https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/community/
  2. You can run the installer without a Microsoft account,
  3. MSBuild.exe will be installed in:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin
    or:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin
  4. Add one of the above paths to Path environment variable - select the one that contains MSBuild.exe application,
  5. Open Command Prompt or other command line and check if MSBuild.exe is working (command line should be opened/re-opened after Path variable is updated).

Screenshots:
