    In the folder where your project lives, run msbuild. you might have to add this to your PATH first, it is somewhere in the vs Installation directory.

    Navigate to the directory of your project in Powershell and type in "msbuild". Done.

    @TobyAsE ah i see i wasn't clear enough. i meant a PS script, not the shell itself. written with the ISE. Or is it the same there?
