What do I need to do to deploy a build agent on windows?
To build and deploy Windows, Azure, and other Visual Studio solutions you’ll need at least one Windows agent. Windows agents can also build Java and Android apps.
Before you begin:
- If your code is in Azure DevOps and the hosted agent meets your needs, you can skip setting up a private Windows agent.
- If your code is in an on-premises Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2015 server, see Deploy an agent on Windows for on-premises TFS 2015.
- Otherwise, you’ve come to the right place to set up an agent on Windows. Continue to the next section.
Learn about agents
If you already know what an agent is and how it works, feel free to jump right in to the following sections. But if you’d like some more background about what they do and how they work, see Build and release agents.
Make sure your machine is prepared with our Windows system prerequisites.
If you’re building from a Subversion repo, you must install the Subversion client on the machine.
