Building Visual C++ with Bamboo as a service

A user reported a tricky bug with the NAnt Builder…running an NAnt build when Bamboo runs as a service would end up with a error on the import of the msxml libraries, wheras running Bamboo via the console would be fine.

Turns out that when msbuild runs as a service, it doesn’t have the full path available, so adding the updating the solution options in Visual Studio (Tools menu > Options >
Project and Solutions > VC++ Directories) to ensure that


are specified before the rest of the entries fixes the problem.
