Don't deploy software from your build process. Use a tool designed for automating and managing releases.

comment ms-release-management and release-management tags are getting confused
@HansPassant 100% agree. I think renaming the [ms-release-management] tag to [release-management-vs] or [release-management-visual-studio] or [release-management-tfs] would be the best approach. Thoughts?

If he created the workspace in VS2010, it was created as a server workspace. He'll need to convert it to a local workspace. I'll update my answer with a link on how to accomplish that.

@MrHinsh The question would probably be better phrased as "How do I avoid deploying my test assemblies" :)

comment ms-release-management and release-management tags are getting confused
Not sure I agree. The release-management tag has value. It's just about a specific subdivision of ALM, just like you might tag a question about branching strategies with Git with [branching]. One tag is for a practice, one is for a specific tool around the practice. Plus, the release-management tag has about 5x as many questions.

comment Prevent TFS Build Definition Source Settings from triggering a build
If the /Includes/ folder is just third-party references, why not make them into NuGet packages and reference them from the projects that need them?

comment Get Changesets Associated With Build
Is this for release purposes? If so, you'll be much better served by using SSDT and publishing your database schema during your release process.

Depending on how they configured routing, you might not see anything under IIS. Follow the instructions in the blog post.
