I am trying to download the latest version using the VS 2012 'Extensions and Updates' tool and get an unexplained error. The only way I could figure out what the error is was by starting 'Fiddler' to monitor the download activity, which showed the following error: 'Content-Length mismatch: Response Header claimed 486728 bytes, but server sent 360960 bytes'. So I downloaded the *.vsix file (360960 bytes) from this website. But when trying
The report publishing errors that Michael Hotek receives are probably due to the fact that the TP hasn't been configured yet, I had the same problems. So, go to the web access, open the board and click on the link 'Configure feature'. Follow the steps of the wizard and after that, when the agile process is configured correctly, the reports can be deployed without errors.
The entire update reports feature does not work and does things that it really shouldn't. When it says update reports based on a process template, I expect it to do exactly that, and only that. I connected to a TFS 2012 instance and selected Update Reports and Portals. Select the Agile 6.2 process template as the source, check just the box for reports, and select 1 team project. Click Update. Not only does it fail to add any of the reports to the SSRS report portal, it fails with a pile of errors completely unrelated to pushing reports to a team project. For example:

Actually - what it does is to create a config file instructing the process to only update reports. And then lets Microsoft own stuff take care of the rest.
We use VS 2010 here and would have loved to use the folder specific search in file feature but it's not available in the 2010 version of the extension and trying to install this one in VS 2010 gives me "The extension manifest is invalid."

Hi Jerther, great to hear that you like the feature.
It is a nice tool that makes up the key missing features from original TFS.

Sorry for your inconvenience, the latest bits is always at the http://tfsadmin
So far I've had several crashes that locked up VS and I had to end task.

Thanks for your time and feedback.
It is not clear how to start the various functions of the toolkit. Is there any documentation on it?
Tool look nice, but I cannot use it cause I cannnot limit it to a single Team Project and I do not like it to go though all 80 Team Project and 1.5 TB to find the info for one Team Project.
