The MSSCCI Provider will not install on Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 203 R2, regardless of the service pack or edition - because it requires Visual Studio Team Explorer 2012, which is not compatible with those OS versions. Please update the requirements because people are wasting valuable time trying to install it on those OS versions because Windows Server 2003 is listed as compatible!
MSSCCI works as it did with prior versions. The experience working with VS6, VS 2003 and VS 2005 isn't nearly as good as working with a Team Explorer-supported version like VS 2008 and up; but it does allow basic version control operations like check-out and check-in. It makes the experience just painful enough that developers are motivated to get that code upgraded to a newer version.
There is an outstanding bug with VS 2005 and TFS 2012 MSSCCI if you use the Comments Check-in Policy. As of this writing, this bug has been acknowledged by the product team, but no fix is available yet.
Our company have some legacy apps made with MS Visual Foxpro 9 SP2. We are migrating from Visual Source Safe to Team Foundation Server. We know we can only use Source control features with VFP and we wanted to use checkin policies to improve our work.
When we try to do checkin to any modified object the following error appears:
Error loading the Changeset Comments Policy policy (The policy assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.CheckinPolicies.ChangesetComments, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' is not registered.). Installation instructions: To install this policy, follow the instructions in CheckForComments.cs.
First of all, we have the following config:
-TFS2012 Ver 50727.01
-Windows Server 2008
-Visual FoxPro 9 SP2
-MSSCCI Provider 2012 32Bit
-VS2012 Update 2 (we use it for our .net projects)
-MS Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 Update 1 Power Tools
I have investigated in internet and so far I've encountered that we need to install TFS Server Power tools and it must match our VS version. I've installed but the error persists. I discovered that the installed TFS powertools corresponds to version 11.x and MSSCCI Provider despite being version 2012 is asking for assembly version 10.x. I tried to install the old 10.x version of MSSCCI but it requires to have installed a VS2010 product so I installed Team Explorer 2010 and I even Installed TFS PowerTools 2010 but The error remains. Please help me and tell me how to fix this issue. Thanks in advance for your help.
Are you seeing the checkin policy error when trying to check-in using MSSCCI, Visual Studio, or both? We haven't heard about any issues using policies with TFS2012 and VS2012, so it would be good to try to narrow this issue down to the MSSCCI provider.
Also, feel free to email me at mmitrik at Microsoft dot com so we can include others if needed.
Why do I get the following message when I attempt to install the MSSCCI Provider?
"Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Team Explorer or its tools are not installed or registered. Please install or repair your Team Foundation Client Installation".
I am trying to get VS 2005 to connect to TFS 2012.
What else do I need to do?
Hi, I wonder why Windows Server 2003 is still in the list of supported OS Version. AFAIK VS 2012 requires Win7 /Windows Server 2008 or above.
If MSSCCI Provider requires VS 2012, then 2003 can't work.
Or is there a way to get this TFS 2012 compatible MSSCCI provider to work with VS2010 without installing VS 2012 Teamexplorer?
We are getting two different errors when we try to connect TFS 2012 from VS 2005
1. TFS Error: Workspace xxx already exists in System 'yy'.
2. 'Text' is an invalid XmlNodeType, Line 1, position 749.
TFS 2012 Server
Windows 7 system
Team Explorer 2012
.net framework 4.5
Why the VS 2012 is mentioned in the Software Requirements?
If I need to connect the TFS 2012 from VS 2005, whether I need VS 2012 installed in my system?
Installation returns this message: "Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Team Explorer or its tools are not installed or registered. Please install or repair your Team Foundation Client Installation".
SO: XP SP3
VS: VS2005 SP1
TFSC: TFE 2005 SP1
What I forgot?
