Where do you install the web site - directly on the build server I would imagine? Feeling uncharacteristically optimistic I tried to install the web site on my laptop and was hoping I could direct it somehow to my build server in a configuration screen. i was able to login to TFS as in your video, but when I clicked on 'Dashboard' I found out that my hope was dashed :).

Is there any more basic install info I need to know about?

Thanks - the product looks very promising. I will attempt to install this on my build server tomorrow.

Happy New Year.

Automaton is suppose to work from any server on your network, as long as you can connect to your TFS and TFS Build Servers it should work fine.

When that is said, Automaton is still in beta and all possible scenarios can't be tested all the time.

Automaton relies on Web Service calls to the Team Foundation Server API. And the user you configure on your machine needs a high degree of permission, and it needs write permission to the build drop folders.
