If you add a TypeScript file to a C# class library project it does not compile the typescript. You have to edit the csprj file and add the line 
  <Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath32)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v$(VisualStudioVersion)\TypeScript\Microsoft.TypeScript.targets" />

after the CSharp import entry., to get TypeScript compilation to work.

Thank you for your feedback.

TypeScript is currently only supported for ASP.NET Web Application projects. It is not currently supported when working with C# class libraries.
