    I'm working on an automation task to build our binaries. Say we have platforms Win32 and x64 as defaults in both solution and project files. Now I want to add a new platform ARM to platform family, is it possible to create it through command line? I tried both devenv and msbuild, none have this functionality.

    I know there's a potential solution on this, use python or equivalent scripting language to hack solution and project file, insert new configuration blocks in, but that requires too much effort. Parsing through solution file and retrieving GUIDs for projects could be tricky.

    Is there any neat way to add new platforms to visual studio projects through command line?

    Thank you
