Configure Team Foundation Build for an Incremental Build

A question I got today: “How can I configure my Team Build for an incremental build?”.

So, it’s simple.

Team Build 2005

Add the PropertyGroup definition to the end of the TFSBuild.proj file, before the closing </project> tag.

Set the following properties:

   <PropertyGroup>      <SkipClean>true</SkipClean>      <SkipInitializeWorkspace>true</SkipInitializeWorkspace>      <ForceGet>false</ForceGet>   </PropertyGroup>

Team Build 2008

Set IncrementalBuild property to true. To do it, add the PropertyGroup definition to the end of the TFSBuild.proj file, before the closing </project> tag.

   <PropertyGroup>      <IncrementalBuild>true</IncrementalBuild>   </PropertyGroup>
