comment Does the "Can Trigger a Release from a Build" feature of Release Template ignore security settings?
@zlogo It's not strange. Think of a CI build. That build will be triggered by anyone who checks code in. If you have it set to be released, it should always release. It would be strange if it didn't release in certain situations, but did release in others.

Be careful with your terminology: Should you create a separate SSDT project? Absolutely. Should you create a separate TFS team project? Absolutely not.

comment Correct way to to TDD on a file reading word builder
That is correct -- during the transition from "failing" to "passing", your concern is having all the tests pass. Afterwards, you worry about the implementation. This question is too general to answer (it would probably be a better fit for programmers Stack Exchange), but basically, start with a the simple cases and work up to more complex ones. What happens when your input file doesn't exist? What happens if the file is empty? What happens if the file contains one letter? The first test might be "I can instantiate this class and get a valid instance".

"I believe implementation is irrelevant when unit testing, correct me if wrong". You are wrong. Implementation is always relevant. Remember, TDD goes failing -> passing -> refactor.

comment TFS 2013 - Can't build a project
Are you using the Administrator account in both cases? The build service account should be a domain account that is in the Build Service Accounts group in TFS.

What account is the build service running as? Is it a real service account? Did the password perhaps expire?
