We have a solution that has been converted to 2008 solution and project file format, but we cannot figure out how to get the TFS 2005 build server to build the solutions

.

We receive the following error from TFS for these solutions:


Solution file error MSB5014: File format version is not recognized. MSBuild can only read solution files between versions 7.0 and 9.0, inclusive.


The version for the solution after the upgrade is 10. Is there a way to redirect TFS to use the 2008 msbuild

I'm not sure if anyone's answered this for you or not, but I had the same issue. Microsoft told me that you need to upgrade your build server to 2008 in order to build your 2008 projects.

If you haven't upgraded already, the process is very smooth and there's some cool new features in the new Build Server.
