We upgraded from SS 8.0 into TFS 2012 with the databases hosted on Sql 2012 SP1 cumulative update 7. We found when converting projects with history, we always got the error "Migration failed due to "TF60086: Unable to read or write to the intermediate database on Microsoft SQL Server <Instance Name>. A trigger returned a resultset and/or was running with SET NOCOUNT OFF while another outstanding result set was active." When we pointed the VSS upgrade tool to a 2008R2 instance for the temporary database it creates, we loaded the full history into our TFS repository in SQL 2012 without error.
At the first glance, every looked OK, but then we discovered that only this year history was migrated to TFS 2013.
I'm having problems installing this on my Windows 8.1 OS. I keep getting the error message "Another setup is already running. Please wait for it to finish before trying again.". I've already checked the compatibility settings on the tfs_VssUpgrade.
Nice. Wish I had this 5 years ago - needed to do exactly this type of thing. Thanks.
2 words: works good
It works with TFS 2013 but only if you are using the TFS version and not GIT.
It helps me to upgrade my old visual source vb6 projects to tfs
I had no problem at all migrating our TFS databases with this tool. This is a dramatic improvement over earlier releases.
this is so complicated there has to be video tutorials for this its a must
I am agree with BHPatel. The wizard is not very flexible. But after all it worked.
The tool is not flexible at all. The tool does not let me pick VSS database below roots level project. In my case I did not wanted to migrate all my applications to TFS. I only wanted to migrate one application out of 10 application. The tool did not let me pick one application.
I have Windows 2008 Enterprise Edition SP 2. x64 which VSS 2005 is currently running on. I tried to run the wizard and it comes up "The specified program requires a never version of Windows". There doesn't seem to be listed anywhere what the system requires of this Upgrade Tool is (not even in the documentation)?

Warren - thanks for letting us know - we'll add that to the docs. You can run this from Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Server 2012.
