Was this issue fixed? I am having the same problem. Even though I installed it, no plugins show up under Tools ->Source Control -> Plugins in my SSMS.
I am using SQL Server 2008 R2 and TFS 2012 Premium.
I think I found the issue (at least for me). I have a 64-bit os, but the SSMS is a 32-bit. I installed the 32-bit version of "Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 MSSCCI Provider", then it showed up in SSMS.
Hope this helps someone.
I am running a Win7 64bit instance, with VS2012.3 Ultimate. When I try and install Team explorer, the installation will only allow a repair or uninstall of Team Explorer, perhaps because the functionality is installed in VS2012.
However, when downloading this component from the link above the application name comes up as "Team Foundation Server Power Tools 2012" in the IE Security Warning.
When I run the installation, I get the message: "Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Team Explorer or itstools are not installed or registered. please install or repair your Team Foundation Client Installation". Then exits. The same happens for the 32bit download.
My connection to TFS through VS2012 works perfectly, so does power tools. I only want this component to integrate SSMS.
When trying to install the provider, I'm getting the "Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Team Explorer or its tool are not registered. Please install or repair your Team Foundation Client Installation" message.
Looking at the requirement for "VS2012 Team Explorer" it doesn't seems to be an option (The specified program requires a newer version of Windows).
What to do?
BTW: running VS2005 Architect on the Win2003 installation
I am not able to connect team foundation server using the given MSSCCI provider.
For more information please see the query raised in the blog.
I am really looking forward for any solution on this issue.
Thanks in advance.
