Building EXEs and Installers from command line

Is there a way to build an EXE and installer (via Application Builder) through the command line? It looks like it is possible, but I haven't been able to find the commands to accomplish this. We will be adding some .NET components to our LabView application, and I'd like to be able to: - Compile .NET code - Execute Unit tests - Compile LV code (using new .NET assemblies) - Package LV application I know I can control all of this through a VI, but I'd rather not maintain my build process in LabView.

I don't have that example installed, but it looks like the best solution is to build an executable that wraps BuildTargetBuildSpecification.

Is that an internal resource?  I'm not able to reach that address (DNS can't resolve it).
