Accelerating C Sharp Applications

Accelerating C Sharp Applications

IncrediBuild can accelerate C Sharp (C#) applications, provided that many projects in the C# solution are independent of each other. IncrediBuild will run each project on a core of a machine, so that if for example, there are hundreds of projects in a solution, IncrediBuild will be able to use hundreds of cores in parallel to  accelerate the build of the entire solution.

A C Sharp extension package is required on the machine that initiates the build, in order to accelerate IncrediBuild using C Sharp. In addition, settings must be configured in order to use C Sharp, as described in the following procedure.

To configure settings for use of C Sharp:

  1. On the machine that initiates the build, open the registry and browse to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Xoreax\IncrediBuild\Builder.
  2. Under this key, locate or create the "UseMsBuild" string value and set it to 1.
