This section describes the process for obtaining a copy of the RabbitMQ .Net/C# AMQP client library source code, as well as instructions for building the .Net/C# client libraries from source.
To build the .NET/C# client libraries on Windows, you will need
To build the source with Visual Studio you need to:
To build the source without Visual Studio you first need to make sure you have the .NET's framework directory in your path, which is usually DRIVE:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 for .NET 2.0 or DRIVE:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0 for .NET 3.0.
> msbuild.exe RabbitMQDotNetClient.slnFor more information on msbuild.exe see the MSBuild command line reference.
The library can be built on Linux with Mono, but only with Mono version 2.6 and later. 2.4.x versions, as included with most current Linux distributions, are not sufficient. You can obtain the latest versions of Mono at mono-project.com
Once you have installed a suitable version of Mono, and obtained the RabbitMQ .Net/C# AMQP client library source code, to build the library you should:
$ xbuild RabbitMQDotNetClient.slnFor more information on xbuild see its man page.
