  • Hi Abasaheb,

    So what you need to do is building some custom .NET client app to connect TFS server and retrieve some data from the server repository, correct?

    If so, you can take a look at the built-in extending and programming model of TFS server. TFS programming model consists of both client-side and server-side object model. For server-side object model, it requires TFS server installation and can be used at server machine boundary. While for client-side object model, only install the client components or client-side object model only is enough. For more information, you can refer to the following references:

    And as other member mentioned, this forum is mainly for developing webservice, network and WCF applications. If you need further help on TFS server, you can try posting in the following forums:

  • This is not a WCF issue. And should post to a MSDN TFS forum for help.
