# This file is a template, and might need editing before it works on your project.
# The following script will work for any project that can be built from command line by msbuild
# It uses powershell shell executor, so you need to add the following line to your config.toml file
# (located in gitlab-runner.exe directory):
# shell = "powershell"
# The script is composed of 3 stages: build, test and deploy.
# The build stage restores NuGet packages and uses msbuild to build the exe and msi
# One major issue you'll find is that you can't build msi projects from command line
# if you use vdproj. There are workarounds building msi via devenv, but they rarely work
# The best solution is migrating your vdproj projects to WiX, as it can be build directly
# by msbuild.
# The test stage runs nunit from command line against Test project inside your solution
# It also saves the resulting TestResult.xml file
# The deploy stage copies the exe and msi from build stage to a network drive
# You need to have the network drive mapped as Local System user for gitlab-runner service to see it
# The best way to persist the mapping is via a scheduled task (see:,
# running the following batch command: net use P: \\x.x.x.x\Projects /u:your_user your_pass /persistent:yes
# place project specific paths in variables to make the rest of the script more generic
