If you are trying to solve a problem and cannot find the information you need in the documentation, you can consult other resources such as Knowledge Base articles, the developer community, or product support.

Knowledge Base Articles

You can search the Knowledge Base (KB) online for articles about product issues. Not all issues have a corresponding KB article, but errors encountered by a significant number of customers are typically documented. You can access KB articles on the Knowledge Base (MSBuild search results) Web site.

Community Forums

Forums let you interact with other developers, and also Microsoft employees. If you encounter an error that you cannot find a resolution for, you can post questions about the issue on a forum. You can also search the newsgroups to see whether others have posted about the same issue. You can access the Visual Studio MSBuild forum on the MSDN Forums Web site.

You can access MSBuild community resources on the Channel 9 MSBuild Web site.

Product Support

If you still have questions after you try the other resources, you can contact Microsoft support services by visiting the Microsoft Help and Support Web site. For information about product support available in your area, see Talk to Us.
