This action has been tested with Visual Studio Team System/Team Foundation Build 2005 thru 2017 and may work with other versions as well (some options require newer versions of Team Build).

See the Team System.bld sample for a project utilizing this action.
The Continuous Integration topic describes the inverse process (invoking Visual Build from Team Foundation Build).
