Troubleshooting Team Foundation Build Workspace Issues

The following section describes a common troubleshooting scenario you may experience when working with Team Foundation Build workspaces.

The build process creates a workspace to synchronize sources with the build directory. The build process checks the build directory for a pre-existing workspace. If there is one and it is owned by the current account running the build service, the workspace is deleted and a new one created in its place. If the workspace is owned by another user the following error is recorded in the build log file:

Workspace MyWorkspace does not exist. C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v8.0\TeamBuild\Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets(276,5): error : The working folder C:\MyData is already in use by another workspace on this computer.


Change the build directory being used or delete the workspace with the build directory mapping and retry building.
