In my project executing an implementation creates generic files (TFSBuild.proj, ...).
The problem is that all these files are created only inside the “solution” folder in my project and I have to copy then manually to "TeamBuilds" Folder outside “solution” structure.


Is it possible to generate some files and folder (like build files) outside “solution” structure? (So that I wont have to copy them manually to the place I want them to be)

Sorry but I'm not sure if I'm getting you. On the other hand, perhaps you may find some further info in the VS forums or links like this:

My solution includes many projects located on different drives(servers), for example:

Model, ServiceImplementation, Client and tests  projects - my workstation on  Drive Z,
TeamBuildTypes - my worstation on Drive Y,
Bussines - another server,
Data Access - another server
I create the "solution" project on my workstation, copy projects and files manualy to those locations and configure my solution.

My question is if  it is possible to generate projects, files and folders  outside “solution tree” structure?

I am not sure if the question is relevant to this forum.

Well, that's possible but you may need to write some code, in particular a custom code genenration strategy.
You can get some ideas from this thread:
