I have found the answer:
So I am using Visual Studio 2008 and VS.PHP 2.9 with Team Foundation Server to develop my PHP application. Unfortunately, I have to use TFS and Visual Studio - no switching to Subversion or Git.
I am in the process of writing an MSBuild script to, whenever files are checked into a certain directory in the tree, get the latest version of the modules, put them in a ZIP archive, and then FTP the ZIP archive to a testing server, where they're then unzipped and processed.
If I configure a build with TFS and use its default build methods, nothing really works as my .sln file doesn't contain any of the things MSBuild expects - after all, there's nothing to compile. So, I'm writing my own build script to get the latest versions of the files before ZIPping and FTPing.
My question: anyone know the best way to get the latest version of certain files from TFS from MSBuild? I know how to do it from the command prompt with
tf.exe, but I'd really prefer to do it from the MSBuild script.
Thanks in advance.
