TFS 2013 – Issue: Stuck builds in Team Foundation Build with no build number

Nothing has changed since the initial setup, but all of a sudden, we started getting weird failures.

All of the builds are getting stuck in the queue, and the run time shows 0 seconds.

The build server is separate from the TFS server. It runs on Windows 7, and has been for the past year. There are no errors in the Console on the build server or in TFS.

My build agents say ready, and have the green arrow.

TF226001: Unable to create the detail nodes for factory ConfigurationSummary

I installed Visual Studio 2013 Visual Basic PowerPack to try and fix an issue with the bootstrapper not working correctly. After this install I started getting the following error on all builds:

Issue #1
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V110\Microsoft.Cpp.Platform.targets (44): The builds tools for v120 (Platform Toolset = ‘v120’) cannot be found. To build using the v120 build tools, either click the Project menu or right-click the solution, and then select “Update VC++ Projects…”. Install v120 to build using the v120 build tools.

I Added Environment Variable on the machine ”VisualStudioVersion” and set the value to 12.0 ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\12.0\Bin’ to the Path Variables

Then, I received another error while resolving the issue above:

Issue #2
