For individuals who do not like command prompt, you can use a GUI tool to handle your NAnt build files.  This was mentioned on the Alt.NET yahoo group. Check it out here.  I just played with it briefly and it does it’s job.  You are able to also run the build file while in the UI and see the output.  I’m a command-line guy so, I will probably be using for educating other developers on NAnt.  It’s a good starting point.  It will get people up and running fast.

NOTE: If you are going to .NET 2.0 related items with your build file, you need to edit the config file (NAnt-Gui.exe.config) in the bin folder.  Look at the very bottom of the file and un-comment the 2.0 runtime lines (just like the NAnt.config files too):

   1: <startup>            

   2:         <!-- .NET Framework 2.0 -->

   3:         <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />  <!-- The line I needed -->

   4:         <!-- .NET Framework 2.0 Beta 2 -->

   5:         <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50215" /> 

   6:         <!-- .NET Framework 2.0 Beta 1 -->

   7:         <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.40607" /> 

   8:         <!-- .NET Framework 1.1 -->

   9:         <supportedRuntime version="v1.1.4322" />

  10:         <!-- .NET Framework 1.0 -->

  11:         <supportedRuntime version="v1.0.3705" />

  12:     </startup>
