Using build number in script

I have a NSIS script that runs after my build to package an exe.

I guess I can kick off the script as a "after build" command but I also want to have the AppVeyor build number {build} as a input parameter to the script so I can set the file name of the exe to 1.1.{build} for example.

It should also be possible to kick of the NSIS script as part of the msbuild file that is run - would the {build} parameter be available there?

    Hi Richard,

    I think you can get build number from environment variables:
