    No, they are not the same. VS.NET 2005 will base its build on msbuild a new build tool shipped with the framework version 2.0.

    Nmake is not an easy tool to get to grips with, there are currently serveral other tools for doing command line builds which you will probably find easier to use. Some you might want to check out are nant, sdc, and visual build pro.
