  2. Go to the DLM Automation add-ons webpage.
  3. In the Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) section, click Download plugin
  4. After the TFSBuildPlugin.vsix installer file has downloaded, double-click it to start the installer. 
  5. When installation is complete, restart Visual Studio.
  6. On the machines running your build agents, open Windows Services (services.msc).
