I would probably place it in the same folder as the solution directory.

As Richard MacCutchan[^] mentioned in the comment to the question, you can place it whenever you want. It depends on the menthod you wrote a script.
If you wrote a script as follow:
rem this script should be placed inside the main directory of solution

set buildtool=%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\MSBuild.exe
set solution=theNameOfYourSolution.sln

%buildtool% %solution% /p:Configuration=Debug
%buildtool% %solution% /p:Configuration=Release

you have to place it in the main directory of solution.
