Maintaining build counter when splitting a configuration into multiple configurations


I am currently running 2 build configurations to build our product -- "Small" and "Big".

The small one just compiles our code to see everything's OK.

The big build takes care of running tests, creating an MSI, and deploying it for further tests on a test machine.

I would like to break this process into 2-3 different build configurations (one that builds and tests, then another one would trigger to build an MSI, and so on).

My concern is that having 2 or 3 build configurations will not maintain a single build number (since each triggered build will increment the build counter by 1).

Is there any option to overcome this issue ?
