Two TFS Collections Issue


On my TFS server I have alot of seperate project collections setup but they all depend on one particular project collection (basically a set of class libraries used in all our applications).  I was able to setup a build configuration on the class libraries no problem since it doesn't depend on anything else.  However, when I try to create a project for an actual application that uses the libraries it cannot find them because they aren't a part of that particular TFS project.  

Is there anyway I can include these references into a TeamCity build?

This is the compile error I get in TeamCity: The project file "C:\TeamCity\buildAgent\work\CCHv2\CCHv2\..\Csla-3.8.1\Csla-3.8.1.csproj" was not found.

My sln file for the application is looking for a relative directory on my file system for the libraries since its setup that way on my development box...  Not sure there is an easy answer short of redoing my TFS to one big collection...  Any ideas?

Thanks for the help!

Hi Daren

There are two options:

  1. If you want to build all the sources together all the time,a тв just have a copy of the library in all the projects, then attach two VCS roots to your build configuration and set checkout rules to redirect files to subfolders.
  2. If the library should be compiled and published separatelly, then set artifact dependency to obtain the binaries, and use MSBuild runned instead of Visual Studio SLN runner to build specific projects within a solution.
