I know that some people will say, we used to use another tool but what is the different here is it’s support for most browsers IE all versions and other browser Firefox, Safari, etc, it also open the site simultaneously with the 2 browser at the same time so you can recognize very fast what was the different, it’s also give you very helpful information about how the browser calculate positions an values, and above all this it’s free

I use Get Check in Trigger for build so when I check in my code it queue my code for build and it has an error.
Open the error and click on view log

See where the pat that locate for the need files
Open this target in the MS Build machine, in my case will be as the following

Copy the WebApplications and put it in the same target in the MS Build machine as the previous image
File copied to MS Build machine
Queue another Build the error should disappear but an new error displayed, this error was that MVC dll can’t be found
So I open my Visual Studio machine and copy this dll
And put it in the following path, and to help another error I had to put it in the GAC also
C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\

First you need to click on Manage Build Controller inside visual studio 2010
Click Manage Build Controller
Notice what the state of your build controller, if it’s unavailable or offline?
Build Controller State
Go to your TFS server and open TFS Administration console
Open TFS Administration Consol
Click on build configuration
Sometimes you need to disable and enable the build controller or restart it.
If you click on the error this will open the event viewer for you, you can check for the error that related to TFSbuildServiceHost
open the Visual Studio 2010 again and click on Manage Build Controller, you should see build controller available and ready for work
