TFSBuild TargetsNotLogged Hotfix Available


TFSBuild TargetsNotLogged property fails to cut down noisy builds

You run a build on a Microsoft Team Foundation 2008 Build that has Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed.  However, the targets that are specified by the TargetsNotLogged property may still be logged in the Build Details window.

Because of the logic in the MSBuild engine that is related to caching target outputs, the TargetsNotLogged property prevents logging of only the first project-to-project reference.  All later project-to-project references are still logged just as they were logged before Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1.

You can find the KB article 958845 here.

You must have Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1 installed on the Team Foundation 2008 Build to apply this hotfix.
