I thought it already did. I'm using it now and it works.

Does or when will TeamCity support VS.NET 2008 Projects and Solutions?



Yes, you have a extra Build Task für Visual 2008 solution. Of couse .NET 3.5
must be installed on the Build Agent Server.

Thanks for your quick answers guys.

This is a little off topic from the one I originally posted, but do I need to interpret Albert's answer about the "Build Agent Server" differently if I'm using the free Professional edition rather than the Enterprise edition? I'm only asking questions about TeamCity because the Professional edition is now free, but I'm not really sure I understand what it is. Is it another IDE just for builds or is it a server?

Very off topic, I know.

TeamCity is splitted in different parts. The TeamCity Server which controls
the Build-Agents (who runs only the builds), collect the results and display
its in some forms for the pleasure of the users. Also it handles the
configuration. Additional you can use some PlugIn for your favorite IDE.

With the free Professional you can use 3 Build-Agents. Normally the Agents
are on different server/computer. So i named it Build-Agent-Server :). In
the Standard-Installation 1 Build-Agent will be installaed automaticly with
TeamCity on the same machine. Also the Enterpise Edition can only use 3
Agents without paying extra Mony (this is also possible for the Professional
Version).

Reasons to use more than 1 Build-Agents.

1. Load Balancing if you have a lot of projects (but with 20 Configurations
this is not so often)

2. Differnt Target Frameworks.
To be free of Side-Effects it is usual that a Build Server only has the
things which is needed for build the Application and running the tests. So
no .NET is needed for Java, no .NET 3.5 für .NET 2.0 (if you targeting .NET
2.0 without SP1 it is better to have a build sever which only has the
Original .NET 2.0 installed, 'cause has add classes, methods enums etc. So
if you use, by a mistake, a SP1 function (which is also possible with Visual
Studio 2005) on your Develepmont Machine it will breaks on the Build Server
not on the Customers Computer)

I choosed .NET as an example, the same goes for Java 1.4, 5 and 6 (but i
think flipdoubt is a .net developer)

3. maybe more reason :)

I'm using .NET as well, so I don't need to do any mental translation there. I guess what I'm stumbling with is the precise meaning of the word "server". My group stumbles on this meaning too. When you say "server", you mean a build server that provides the continuous integration and assembly building service, right? You don't mean a web server that we access to review the status of the build, right? Or am I wrong? It is a little twisty to wrap your mind around because whenever I take the TeamCity tour on the JetBrains website, we're accessing what looks like a TeamCity website that developers can use to monitor the status of builds. Is this website/server considered a different server than the build server? Are they both part of the Professional edition?

With Server i mean a computer which runs 24/7 and do some work and no one
must logged in.

build, right? Or am I wrong?


You need a for TC which is accessible with you browser for the stats,
configuration etc. If it is not before installation, it is a web server
after installation :)

The Build Server can be a different computer with an Build Agent installed
(up to three Agents supported with no additional cost in all editions of
TC3). And Everything what you need is included, also in the Professional
Edition.

So you can have without extra Costs for all Editions for TeamCity

1 x TeamCity Server without an Build Agents
3 x Servers with Build Agents

1 x TeamCity Server with a Build Agent
2 x Server with additional Build-Agents

or the simplest configuration

1 x TeamCity Server with a Build Agent (Standard-Installation)

A Server can be a computer or server.
