We use Remote Desktop to connect to our Application Development Server.(VS2012 and TFS2010 )

We have Workspace define in our Server.
The problem is, we need to Change Build path of the same project in different Workspaces. as it does not allow to build application in the same path..

But changing the Build path of every project in the solution is time consuming for every user. also It slows the deployment process of Application Adminsitrator.

How can we overcome? Will TFS Build useful??? but can we devug using TFS Build???

"as it does not allow to build application in the same path" why not? are you running the application while build is in execution?

Yes, Another user is running the same application on the same path but in different workspace, so while another user is executing the other one has to stop till first one complete the execution.

I think you should use ClickOnce deployment so that you can build your applications and then deploy them to an installation location where the users access the program to install and run them. ClickOnce can be configured to force the user to allow the installation of the latest version or let the user decide. You can decide when to publish the compiled program to the installation location.

That is ok for Final Deployment Mike. but what if the developer wants to Debug an Application, to debug an application only one execution is allowed from on location in VisualStudio.

Basically We can solve the problem by changing all the build paths of the projects in the solution. But it becomes very tedious and time consuming.

When we Check-In the Application(Solution) to Team Foundation Server, the Build path of others users also get change when they check out the solution to change it.

I guess I don't understand what you are trying to do so I won't post any more to this question. Maybe the folks in the MSDN forums can help with your questions. There are forums there specifically for Team Foundation Server questions.

Reading the comments on your post it seems like you should look at customizing the MSBuild, TFS Build isn't what you should be looking at. You could have a bat file that developers run and a bat file that gets executed for when you need to deploy or build to a different location.[^]
