  1. I’ve got those, but they only have 1 task to check on changes in a workspace. I need tasks to checkout, checkin, etc.

    First of all, you can control your build by editing the TFSBuild.proj file in the source repository (at least in TFS Orcas, back me up on 2005)

    Second off, all the custom tasks can be found in C:Program FilesMSBuildMicrosoftVisualStudioTeamBuildMicrosoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets

  3. Yeah, I know…

    But do you use Continues Integration outside of Visual Studio/TFS? Because I’m on TFS v1 and CC isn’t included. So I’m using CruiseControl.NET but it’s very hard to run and test this. As far as I know, it must be done on the server itself and cannot be tested locally… Kind of a bummer, as you screwing up the build when you’re adding new stuff. And besides that you might also mess with other build process along the way.

    That’s why I chose to stay of TeamBuild and stay with MSBuild for now and ignore the TFS build possibilities until I find a better way.

    Have a look at this URL:

    It is a MSBuild task for retrieving the drop folder for a build specified.
