Thanks Jeff and Michael for your replies.

Taking a look to how MonoGame currently handles its template for Windows games, I found out they were making use of AssemblyFolderEx registry key, which has allowed us to remove env. vars on both MD and VS templates.

No, this feature comes from MSBuild which falls back to environment variables when evaluating properties.

This should work if you enable the experimental xbuild/msbuild build engine, however other things may not work. For more info, see https://mjhutchinson.com/journal/2012/08/19/state_msbuild_support_monodevelop

One question regarding project templates, is it possible to use on a File reference of type Assembly an env. var.? Somewhat like

<Reference type="Assembly" refto="$(MyEnvVar)Library.dll" />

Above isn't valid, I've already tried it, but maybe the correct syntax differs.

If the answer is no, is there any workaround where I could locate an assembly through an env. var.?
