could you please provide a SharePoint 2013 build environment with VS 2015?

Thank you!

    Hi Julie,

    We don't have SharePoint 2013 pre-installed on build workers, however you can bring all required files from your local machine to a build worker.

    There were successful attempts to run SharePoint 2013 and 2010 builds:

    The general approach could be having a zip with all assemblies and .targets files required to support your builds (their original directories are preserved in the archive) then using fairly simple PowerShell script in the beginning of each build to unpack everything to their original locations, GAC some assemblies if required, set required Registry keys, etc.

    Hi Feodor,

    What exactly does the SharePoint 2013 build worker contain, then? Only the MSBuild targets and libraries? I thought it sounded too good to be true :)

    Thank you,

    There is no more "SharePoint 2013" build worker - it was kind of experimental image.
