If you use a new workspace you need to map remote and local folders by running the command 

./tf workfold /map '$/<your remote project folder>' <local folder> /collection:<collectionUrl> /workspace:workspaceName 

the <local folder> should be your solution folder with .sln file inside.

Do this step after the second step in this post.
