MSBuild CopyTask: Copying the same file to multiple locations

As a response to another post on stackoverflow (, a much easier solution is to use task batching:


   <AssemblyInfoSource Include="AssemblyInfo.cs" />

   <Destinations Include="$(Destination1);$(Destination2)" />


<Target Name="PropagateAssemblyInfo">






The % symbol tells MSBuild to repeat the copy task for each item in Destinations.
