Steve Andrews on MVP TV
Last week was the debut of MVP TV. The idea behind MVP TV is to use Live Meeting to allow for a lot of user interaction with the presenter and create a recording for others to view. The presenter last week was Team System MVP Steve Andrews. Steve covered Team Build 2008 and MSBuild 3.5. I lurked for a bit to get an idea since I think I am the next one to present. Check it out when you have a chance. Happy Coding ......

So I spent a good part of this week off and on tracking down an issue with Team Build. I started with a website project that referenced a compiled DLL (not a project). Once I added the web deployment project and tried to build it with Team Build, I got the following error: Build FAILED. áASPNETCOMPILER : error ASPCONFIG: Could not load file or assembly 'RichTextBox, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=17b15412cfbf... or one of its dependencies. Access is denied. áASPNETCOMPILER : error ......

Demystifying Team Build Part 2
This is the second part of the Team Foundation Build series that I started back in October.á One of the important things to understand about Team Build is the build process.á As I outlined in the first part of this series, Team Build is nothing more than a set of custom tasks for MS Build.á The custom tasks are called from a set of custom targets that are organized to complete the build.? Here are the targets and the order in which they are called: CheckSettingsForEndToEndIte... EndToEndIteration ......

Creating a Daily Build
Team Build is a very powerful tool, but it does not do scheduled builds out of the box. Fortunately, creating a scheduled build is very easy. With my current project, I have created a Build Type called "DailyBuild." I want this build to run each day at 3PM so that I can make sure no changes checked in during the day have broken my application. So here is what I did to achieve this. I created a batch file that contains the following and saved it on my Build server's D drive (hence the C:). @echo off ......
