Customize Binaries Output folder in TFS Team Build 2010
Following are the issues we face due to limitations in default build template. Which require some customization to meet our requirements. The following are the limitations found:
- The workflow treats a solution as single project
- The output of building projects in a solution doesn’t follow the same output directory structure when building in visual studio. For instances, web applications output binaries in the Bin folder while ClassLibrary and Windows applications projects output binaries into the Bin\(configuration) folder.
- In visual studio, binaries are copied to a bin/(configuration) folder where “configuration” is the configuration of the build (e.g. debug, release..etc) whereas the team build outputs all binaries into one folder called Binaries and that folder doesn’t contain sub folders per project
