Team Build Monitor – Vista Sidebar Gadget


I’ve created a sidebar gadget for Windows Vista that lets you monitor a set of build definitions. It’s compatible with Team Foundation Server "Orcas" Beta 1 and it should also work with Beta 2 once it’s released. If you’d like a preview before you try it out, watch the video below where I walk through installing and configuring the gadget.

    I suspect this doesn’t work if you don’t authenticate transparently with the TFS machine.  At least, it’s not working for me and that’s a distinguishing feature of my setup (I get prompted for passwords in other circumstances; here, the build type list never appears).

    That gadget is very useful. Thank you very much. However, I’ve notice that my sidebar.exe process will leak when this gadget runs. Have someone encounter that problem and found a solution ?

    Gadget looks nice, but I’m unable to get the Build Definitions list. It only says: "Working".

    Any tips on how to fix this?
