This is very simple post, we know that custom assemblies or third party libraries must exist on the build server or checked into the source control and configure the build controller to point to them, but how we can do that with Host Build Service on the cloud?

Since we can’t put our assemblies on the build machine on the cloud so we will need to configure the build controller for the Hosted Build Service on the cloud to point to that assemblies, but how we can access that control? It’s very simple

Navigate to the Builds page and click on Actions -> Manage Build Controller.BuildNUnit2

Select the Host Build Controller (Virtual) as we can see in the image, and click on Properties.BuildNUnit3

Point to your custom assemblies in ” Version control path to custom assembliesBuildNUnit4
