Interactive Builds with TFS

Yuval Shavit Profile: YuvalShavit

Steve Porter at Imaginet Academy has been working to get Team Foundation Server (TFS) up and running, and one of his tasks was to take an existing project and migrate it over. His former build was using a couple of tasks from the MSBuild Community Tasks Project (specifically the StopServices and StartServices tasks).

He writes: This worked without a hitch with our 2005 build machine, but when I migrated this script over to our 2008 build machine, the build started failing on these tasks.

The answer in getting these tasks to work lies in using the Interactive Build feature of Team Build 2008, he notes. Team Build now uses WCF to communicate with the build agent and the experience is different than with .Net Remoting based Team Build.
