Is it possible to get the error/warning window through command line?

I have a PowerShell script that builds a number of solutions and automates some necessary moving of files around. This works fine but obviously if there is an error it makes it quite hard to see what went wrong, so I would like to integrate the error/warning window of your excellent MSBuildShellExtension. Is there any way to do this?

I'm afraid not. MSBuild Shell Extension is open source though, so you could simply copy the code needed to show the error/warning window. Also the NAntMenu ( have a similar menu, so if you prefer xaml over winforms, you could copy from that project.
