FIX: A triggered build does not occur after the build frequency interval elapses in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server

In Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server, a triggered build does not occur after you check in the changes that trigger the build, and the build frequency interval elapses.

This problem occurs when the interval is 60 minutes or longer.

Note The practice of creating a triggered build is known as continuous integration.
This problem occurs because of a bug in a Microsoft SQL Server stored procedure that is called when the interval elapses.
