I give it 5 stars for fulfilling an immediate need for TFS 2012 users, myself among them. As I said elsewhere, given the importance that DevOps and within it, DSC have taken over the last two years, the Workbench and Deployment Explorer are a must-have tool for those involved in app deployment for TFS 2012. If you are using TFS 2013 you should adopt Release Manager, however Workbench is still a good way to get started with the general concepts behind DevOps (check the documentation).

DevOps WorkBench is a nice package - keep up the good work! Download/rate my scripts, if you like as well. Thanks.

    • The Workbench is not doing the same thing as the InRelease tool?
    • See http://blogs.msdn.com/b/willy-peter_schaub/archive/2013/09/10/alm-rangers-devops-workbench-express-edition-beta-is-available.aspx for comparison usage matrix. In essence this out-of-band solution targets TSF2012 and is a reference solution for the guidance and the continuous pipeline book (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn449957.aspx). If you are targeting TFS2013 you should consider Release Management for Visual Studio 2013.
    • Just curious if the Continuous Pipeline book will be updated to use Release Manager. I will ask the question there as well.
  • Is this dead?

    • If not, where is 2013 version?  
      
      How does it package?   I am desperate for a WiX replacement.    I have literally written my own package and deployment solution for our product (we are a software vendor, with a remote deployable solution).   I'm curious what this builds to?  Do you get an .msi that is bundled somehow?   
      
      It looks workflow based, and you use wfexecute against a .XAML file.  Could this be packaged and shipped to a customer?  What would be the needed items in a "setup" program for this type of thing?
