Hi,

I am new to Team foundation server and I was wondering if it were possible to add a project reference to a project stored in a different TFS solution?

Thanks,

Xavier.

I believe you would need to download that solution locally, build it, then add a reference. But certainly hold out for other answers  :)

I have a bad feeling that you're right, but wow how nice would it be to have 'Build on Demand' with fail back to last know good build.

Problem is that it is a different team that works on the framework project to the applications teams And we dont really want the application teams dowloading source from the framework! :P

Heres hoping for a miracle answer :)

If you just need the latest Binaries referenced in your project , why not arrange with the other team to drop those binaries in a shared folder using Team build or an MSBuild task , then reference the assembly in your solution from \\server\share\assembly.dll  ?

That is almost what we are currently doing, however perhaps a build task would help automate the process.

Thanks for the idea :)

You are welcome.
Another small tool that I found which helps automate this on a smaller scale, for teams that do not have team build or even for more advanced build / deployment scenarios.
Brilliant tool if you ask me, you can use it to build related solutions either through devenv or MSBuild , run scripts , do source control activities ,send notification mails ,etc..
