one way would be to create a parent script calling all build combinations. In fact, since we are in the process of building a CI environment, we will need something like that real soon.

Does that mean picking up arguments passed to buildwin.cmd and passing them to msbuild as properties (and msbuild in turn does all the conditional processing and invokes child msbuild instances to build solutions) ... is the right way to go. If yes, I think I can contribute
Yes, there is somewhat of msbuild support in the script already but it needs testing. See this post
for more details and links to previous discussions. In particular, VCExpress builds are asked for but we (core developers) do not have time to address that (it is not our pressing need and it would require some code #ifdefing to remove dependencies on MFC imposed bu TestSuite GUI).

When you do the work and test it, send us pull request on github. We'll test your contribution and integrate it. If you need more details or guidance, you can contact me directly at(alex, dot(pocoproject, org)). Here's Getting Started
