Does the latest version (1.5.1) support TFS2012 (Or actually Beta Express 2011)?

When I try to use this activity in the new TFS, I get the following errors in the build:

TF215097: An error occurred while initializing a build for build definition \GameServer\Core: The root element of the build process template found at $/GameServer/BuildProcessTemplates/VersioningBuildTemplate15.xaml (version C291) is not valid. (The build process failed validation. Details:

Validation Error: Compiler error(s) encountered processing expression "Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.Workflow.BuildVerbosity.Normal".

'BuildVerbosity' is ambiguous in the namespace 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.Workflow'.

Validation Error: The private implementation of activity '1: DynamicActivity' has the following validation error:   Compiler error(s) encountered processing expression "BuildDetail.BuildNumber".

Type 'IBuildDetail' is not defined.



Any idea?

Have you changed the references to point on VisualStudio shared libs version and not

Do a quick search in your xaml.

Hmm I can give you mine xaml for refrence because I had to upgrade it to work with tfs2012 the templates in tfsversioning project seem to be targeted for tfs2010.

That would be very helpful - can you send it to

Can you verify that it worked for you on TFS Beta Express 11?

Just to let you know that I (finally!) solved this issue, only after compiling the projects agains the new TFS assemblies (V11.0),

If anyone needs the working assembly, let me know (

If you want the version that works with VS/TFS 2012, you can download it from:


Note: You may have to uninstall the VS 2010 SDK and install VS 2012 SDK.

Version 2.0 now works with TFS 2012.  It has been redone using the latest build templates.
