Where do I get TfvcTemplate.12.xaml?

    Question

  • I understand from reading this that I can call scripts from within the TFS2013 build system.

    It references using TfvcTemplate.12.xaml  as the template.  How do I get access to this template?  

    Is TfvcTemplate.12.xaml compatible with TFS2012?  I have Visual Studio 2013 Preview installed, but my TFS server is still 2012.  Do I have to have TFS2013 to use TfvcTemplate.12.xaml ?

  • Bruce,

    Unfortunately, you can't use 2013 build features with TFS 2012. 

    On the other hand, 2012 Build module will work with TFS 2013.

  • Hello,

    I have installed the 2013 Dev Studio and upgrade my server to 2013, but I still can't find this template.

  • Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for your reply.

    After you upgraded to TFS 2013, to create a new build definition using VS 2013, click Process tab, in the right panel, you can find the default TfvcTemplate.12.xaml, and you can download it from there.

  • I'm using TFS 2010.

    I have VS 2010, 2012, and 2013 installed on my build agent.  I can build my VS 2013 WinRT 8.1 C++ projects fine from the IDE.  But the TFS Build fails with:

    The builds tools for v120 (Platform Toolset = 'v120') cannot be found.

  • Hello,

    First of all TfvcTemplate.12.xaml is a new build process template which comes with TFS 2013. You canot use it with TFS2012. And one more thing. Even if you upgrade to TFS2013 to use this new Build template, make sure you works with VS 2013, unless you dont want to customize it.

    The *12.xaml templates only work properly with VS2013. (VS2013 is Visual Studio version 12.0). They reference some assemblies that only VS2013 knows about.

    thanks, Binit
