## Remarks

The GetBuildProperties task is defined in the Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.Tasks.VersionControl.dll. The Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets file contains an instance of the GetBuildProperties task that Team Foundation Build uses as a default implementation for the InitializeBuildProperties target.

The <root>:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\TeamBuild folder on the Team Foundation Build computer contains the Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets file.

## Example

The following example shows the default instance of GetBuildProperties task defined in the Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets file.

```<GetBuildProperties     TeamFoundationServerUrl="\$(TeamFoundationServerUrl)"
BuildUri="\$(BuildUri)">
</GetBuildProperties>
