A while ago i posted some code that allows you to update the Assembly references. Here is some code that uses the Team Foundation Server SDK that checks the csproj files out and updates their references. Afterwards it’s possible to check the modified csproj files in with a reference to a WorkItem (or to undo the checkout in case no modifications were made).

static void Main()
{
	string tfsServerName = "tfsrtm08";
	string projectsPath = @"D:\Projects";

	Console.WriteLine( "Connecting to TFS [" + tfsServerName + "]..." );
	TeamFoundationServer teamFoundationServer = TeamFoundationServerFactory.GetServer( tfsServerName );

	Console.WriteLine( Environment.NewLine + "Modified ProjectFiles:" );
	List<workspace> workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles = UpdateReferencesInProjectFiles( teamFoundationServer, projectsPath );

	Console.WriteLine( Environment.NewLine + "Modified Workspaces: " );
	foreach( Workspace workSpace in workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles )
	{
		Console.WriteLine( workSpace.Name );
	}

	//int workItemId = -1;
	//CheckInPendingChanges( teamFoundationServer, workItemId, workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles );

	Console.Write( "{0}Press any key to continue...", Environment.NewLine );
	Console.ReadKey();
}

private static List<workspace> UpdateReferencesInProjectFiles( TeamFoundationServer teamFoundationServer, string projectsPath )
{
	VersionControlServer versionControlServer = (VersionControlServer) teamFoundationServer.GetService( typeof( VersionControlServer ) );

	List<workspace> workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles = new List<workspace>();
	foreach( string projectFileName in ProjectFile.Find( projectsPath ) )
	{
		Workspace workSpace = versionControlServer.GetWorkspace( Path.GetFullPath( projectFileName ) );
		workSpace.PendEdit( projectFileName );

		if( UpdateReferencesInProjectFile( projectFileName ) )
		{
			Console.WriteLine( projectFileName );
			if( !workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles.Contains( workSpace ) )
			{
				workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles.Add( workSpace );
			}
		}
		else
		{
			workSpace.Undo( projectFileName );
		}
	}
	return workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles;
}

private static void CheckInPendingChanges( TeamFoundationServer teamFoundationServer, int workItemId, List<workspace> workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles )
{
	WorkItemStore workItemStore = (WorkItemStore) teamFoundationServer.GetService( typeof( WorkItemStore ) );

	WorkItem workItem = workItemStore.GetWorkItem( workItemId );
	WorkItemCheckinInfo[] workItemChanges = new WorkItemCheckinInfo[] { new WorkItemCheckinInfo( workItem, WorkItemCheckinAction.Associate ) };
	foreach( Workspace workSpace in workSpacesWithUpdatedProjectFiles )
	{
		PendingChange[] pendingChanges = workSpace.GetPendingChanges();
		workSpace.CheckIn( pendingChanges, string.Empty, null, workItemChanges, null );
	}
}
