Once that is done you have two options Installing this as a Module or a Snap-In

Run the InstallUtil.exe from your .Net Framework 4.0 folder generally it's in your <<Windows Folder>>Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ folder.
You need to run this command in the command line or in PowerShell: InstallUtil PSTFSBuildSnapIn.dll
Run the following command in PowerShell to add the registered SnapIn: Add-PSSnapIns PSTFSBuild

Run the following command in PowerShell
