TFS 2012 + Ant: Unable to access ant-launcher.jar

    Great tip. FWIW JAVA_HOME might not be required if you installed Java via the Oracle installation method as the build extensions will also go looking in the Registry to find a JAVA_HOME is there is not one set in the TFSBuild.proj or in the build services environment variables.

    However, ANT_HOME is required. You can always manually specify ANT_HOME in your TFSBuild.proj if you wanted but you are better off doing what you did and set it as a system wide environment variable.

    Glad TEE 2012 RC is working well for you though – let me know how you get on.
