HI @Zuest,

Welcome to the community! :wave:

The SonarScanner for MSBuild is the correct tool for the job here. Because it uses features of the MS Roslyn compiler, it requires you to build and analyze your solution using .NET Framework 4.6+ but you can use that and still target earlier versions of the .NET framework by following these instructions.
