# Unable to get msbuild and powershell to play nice with parsing a path that contains spaces

I think the issue was by ths following , You have problem with quotes in your command. Simple solution would be to use single quote inside PowerShell command and put all command inside double quotes.
code :
"$(PowerShellExe)" "& '$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\Build.ps1' -slnPath '$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\' -tfExeLocation 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\tf.exe'"  <Exec Command="&quot;$(PowerShellExe)&quot; &quot;&amp; '$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\Build.ps1' -slnPath '$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\' -tfExeLocation 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\tf.exe'&quot;" />

## Parsing rules - how to make them play nice together

By : Tsega Eb

I wish did fix the issue. LL(k) parsers (top down recursive, whether automated or written by hand) require refactoring of your grammar to avoid left recursion, and often require special specifications of lookahead (e.g. ANTLR) to be able to handle k-token lookahead. Since grammars are complex, you get to discover k by experimenting, which is exactly the thing you wish to avoid.
YACC/LALR(1) grammars aviod the problem of left recursion, which is a big step forward. The bad news is that there are no real programming langauges (other than Wirth's original PASCAL) that are LALR(1). Therefore you get to hack your grammar to change it from LR(k) to LALR(1), again forcing you to suffer the experiments that expose the strange cases, and hacking the grammar reduction logic to try to handle K-lookaheads when the parser generators (YACC, BISON, ... you name it) produce 1-lookahead parsers.

## Unable to get Jenkins and Git to play nice

For a network path (such as V:) to be accessible/active, a user needs to be logged in. The Jenkins service does not actually log-in to a system, even if you run the service as you, and therefore network paths are usually not available by drive letter.
code :
\\server\path\to\gitrepo


## Powershell search for any exe in environment path always returns msbuild.exe

To fix this issue I would use a different and probably more effective check for nuget.exe availability
code :
if (!(Get-Command nuget.exe -ErrorAction 0)) {
}

this one helps. Try to put #requires -version 2.0 one line up the closing comment #>

## How to pass path with spaces and trailing backslash to MSBuild as property

By : Andy Igor Reeves
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
I wish this help you It is because of the way the property is being set on the command line. MSBuild is adding the " to the end of the value because of the last '\' and therefore " is appended to the end of the string path.
Add a extra \ when setting the value from the command line and the string will append the backslash for you as intended or not place the " on the end.
