1. Is it really that easy? This is brilliant!


  2. Scary stuff dude. I didn’t quite expect this to be the solution to the problems of last week. One question remains: Does this work for the nightly build of the Silverlight sample app I send you last week?


  3. SIlverlight 4.0 application run fine in this scenario. The nice thing about this solution is, that it runs all project types that are supported in Visual Studio 2010.


  4. Hello. I was wondering if anyone has figured out how to get ClickOnce apps working after this change is made? All my other solutions are working fine so far (VS 2008/ VS 2010), But my click once apps are failing. The runtime version is getting updated to the 4.x framework version rather than with what it was built with.

    Anyone know of any pre-processing we can do on the manifest or override one of the targets during teh build itself. We found you cannot do it afterwards since it creates a violation.

    THanks for the information for sure on how to get going so easily, but this is our last sticking point. Hopefully we’ll migrate, but until then we need to figure this out.

  5. I got closer but now I am getting the following, any thoughts? I installed 4.0, modified the .config file.  Anything else to check or install?

    error MSB4019: The imported project “C:Program FilesMSBuildMicrosoftVisualStudiov10.0WebApplicationsMicrosoft.WebApplication.targets” was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.

  7. This is NOT a solution. What the author fails to mention is that this “solution” requires that you install VS 2010 IDE onto the TFS 2008 build server. If you’re okay doing that, then it’s as easy as stated. Otherwise, you will encounter many problems, including the one mentioned by David Williams.

  8. Depending on what you need, you might want to install (features) of Visual Studio 2010 on the build server.
    In most cases, the .NET framework, SDK en and Team Build service are enough in my situation. For some project types however you would need to install additional features.


  9. Regarding comments about having to install VS2010 on the build server, can you clarify if VS2010 needs to be installed on the TFS app server and the Build server? Maybe a list of what needs to be installed and where would be great. We are using two separate servers and VS2008 projects are currently working great. We are getting errors for our clients that are using VS2010. I am hoping that this is as easy as it sounds. Thank you.


  10. The build is executed on the build server (controller/agent) so the software needs to be installed on the build server.
