How to Build VB6 Apps with TFS Team Build 2010
In the last week I have seen three requests for people wanting to know how to build Visual Basic 6 Applications with Team Foundation Server. Turns out one of my ALM MVPs, Richard Banks, has written a great blog post on exactly this topic. In his post he walks you through modifying the build workflow, replacing the “Run MSBuild for Project” activity with one that calls VB6.exe. This post can be seen on Richards blog at:
Richard Banks has developed software for the last 20 years for a wide range of industries and development platforms and over the years and has filled many roles including developer, team lead, project manager and CIO/CTO. He is a Professional Scrum Master Trainer and Professional Scrum Developer Trainer, runs the Sydney Alt.Net user group and the Talking Shop Down Under podcast, owns and contributes to a few open source projects and has spoken at Microsoft Tech.Ed and a number of other events and user groups around the country. For some strange reason he gets a real kick out of helping development teams to improve and produce great software. If you want to get in touch he tweets at @rbanks54 and blogs at http://www.richard-banks.org/. He currently works as a Principal Consultant for Readify and is a Microsoft Visual Studio ALM MVP.
