You can set the value of property in the following manner
pass the value in proj/targets file inside PropertyGroup tag
pass the value in the msbuild command line using /p switch
pass the value of the property in rsp file using /property switch
pass the value by using CreateProperty task
Value specified using CreateProperty task will always have the highest precedence.
Value specified in task/targets file under PropertyGroup tag will have the least precedence
Value specified using command line or rsp file have equal precedence. The one passed later will override the earlier one. For example if rsp file set Name = “RspName” and the command line set Name = “CmdName”.
Calling msbuild @rspfile /p:Name=CmdName will set the value of Name property to CmdName
Calling msbuild /p:Name=CmdName @rspfile will set the value of Name property to RspName
