It would be usefull to investigate... surely there is a way to do
unattended build, even on windows.

Heading "Creating and Building a Basic ClickOnce Application Using MSBuild"....

might be helpful for you to know what I do to release a new version: Open
Visual Studio 2012 for Windows Desktop | Build --> Publish <Productname> |
(A wizard opens. I enter the FTP Url I want it to be published -> I enter
the download URL -> I agree, that the software should be available online +
offline -> Finish
Build starts --> Prompt opens, asking me for FTP username + password -->
Waiting a second (till everything is uploaded --> A webpage opens when
everything is finished. Everyone using the program get a Update prompt and
are able to download it...
There is 2 separate task: building the porduct... and uploading it.
scipting the upload is not too much of a problem...
Well IMHO it is.... Remember: It doesn't has a real installer. It downloads the latest version from the web... So it must link to the webpage as a source for downloading, or in other words, you need to change something in the product in order to test, whether it is working....

scripting the build... well it is windows, so who knows...

Link above (Visual Studio needed)

IMHO a daily would be non-sense as everyone would be forced to use a
daily... (See above)
a daily build does not really mean _daily_ first a buildbot only build
if there is something 'new' and will only upload if it build...
and we can make the buildbot monitor the master branch to do just
plain build (for verification purpose)
and a 'release' branch that will only see new commit when you are
ready to release a new version... which will then be built + uploaded.

The only way to scale, is to automate. so anything that require
someone to sit in front of a screen and click-wait-click-wait-click is
not good.
Mmh, not so much to wait. Building in seconds (well it's not so big). If I am ready to release, it will be released within one minute including building and uploading and verifying the upload... (Keep in mind, it is a ClickOnce application, NOT a normal Windows app)

It may sound not to bad when you have just one small project, with one
platform supported and little change rate... but now imagine dozen of
these, and lo itself that see 50+ commit a day with 4-5 platforms and
typically 2 release branches + master...

Well, it is a small project, I totally understand it for bigger projects with a build time over 10 seconds...
