Installation SonarScanner for MSBuild for .NET Framework or .NET Core

I am new to SonarQube and am having difficulties getting started. I was able to get this up and running but trying to get SonarQube to read my C# Project is a little confusing.

I am trying to install the SonarScanner for MSBuild for .NET Framework or .NET Core, however, the documentation says “Expand the downloaded file into the directory of your choice”

The issue is I was not prompted to download anything. Is this referring to my SonarQube installation?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Could you orient me with a link to the documentation you’re using?

 
Thx,
Ann

@ganncamp Sure thing! It is here

When I click on this download button. It directs me to this documentation above

Hi,

It’s not clear to me which download button you mean.

Did you download a scanner from the grey block at the top of the documentation page?

(Just FYI, your localhost docs link isn’t going to work for people who don’t have a copy of SonarQube running locally. So for posterity, here’s the public version of the same docs link: https://docs.sonarqube.org/latest/analysis/scan/sonarscanner-for-msbuild/)

@ganncamp No, I do not see a grey box at the top of the page. Here is what my local page looks like

I did the first step and the second step has the blue and white button I was talking about. When you click that button it does not download anything.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in coming back to you. When you click that button, it takes you to a page (with a grey box on top) where you choose what to download.

 
HTH,

@ganncamp Correct, the download button never downloads anything instead it takes me to the documentation page.

And on the documentation page you have the option to choose exactly what flavor to download…

@ganncamp That’s the issue. The documentation page I am directed to assumes I have already downloaded this MSBuild.

In the first step it says to " Expand the downloaded file into the directory of your choice. We’ll refer to it as $install_directory in the next steps."

Because nothing downloaded locally, I do not have anything to “Expand”. Unless I am doing this all wrong?

Hi,

The idea is that you will start at the top of the page & download something from a link in the grey box. From there, you’ll have something to expand. :smiley:

 
HTH,
