How to get SystemRoot folder during TFS Build

Getting the System Root Directory during TFS Build was not straightforward as I thought, so I decided to share my experience on how to get that.

  • I used the InvokeMethod activity. In the Target Type, I will put the name of the static class that has the method I need to use.
  • In MethodName, I will put GetEnviornmentVariable.
  • Write the value to the build log by calling WriteBuildError and passing the value returned from GetEnviornmentVariable.

Note: For InvokeMethod activity, if I need to call a method from an instance object, then I will use Target Object not Target Type.
