Hello,
following challenge: I want to build C++ Solutions (1 project/solution) with TFS and VS2005. When the tfs builds the solution it wont copy the dll- and lib-file to the binary-folder. I found out that it has something to do with the settings of the Project-File (.vcproj) since I changed some of the properties to the default-values ("<inherit from parent or project defaults>") and it works (it copies at least the dll-file, however the lib-file isnt there and the drop doesnt work).
Now my question:
Which properties do I have to change to which (maybe default-)values so that it works
Thank's in advance,
Chris

Since I already deleted 2 answers I posted to my own thread cause I thought I found the solution, here my third try:

in the property-file exist following lines:

<Tool
Name="VCLinkerTool"
AdditionalOptions="/MACHINE:I386"
AdditionalDependencies="odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib"
OutputFile=".\Release\cpp300.dll"
LinkIncremental="1"
SuppressStartupBanner="true"
ModuleDefinitionFile=".\cpp300.def"
GenerateDebugInformation="true"
ProgramDatabaseFile=".\Release\cpp300.pdb"
SubSystem="2"
BaseAddress="0x22500000"
ImportLibrary=".\Release\cpp300.lib"
/>

If I delete the marked lines above the copy works.
Has anyone an idea why And why do I get a "Successful Build" although the copy doesn't work

I'm moving the thread in hopes that someone in the msbuild forum knows the answer.
