Same problem as mentioned by 'by Jon Kirby | March 09 2012 ' Visual studio crashes againa and again . I have to uninstall the Tools to make my visual studio work. Thats a shame I can't even use the Tool. Iam hoping some update will be done in order to solve the issue. Else it makes simply useless.
The Team Explorer changes causes Visual Studio to crash whenever you go to Team Explorer. This happens on our main development machines but not on our virtual build machine. On the build machine the additions seem good.
The Windows Explorer integration works fine and is good.
Rating it down due to it's stability issues on some machines.
I used Domain Administrator to run SQL Sever EXPRESS, and Domain Administrator to setup the backup. Still get the permission error on last two steps. I tried local folder and remote folder. All failed.
I can open share folder from Window Explore without any problem. I use windows Server 2003.
There is the error log.
[Error @21:50:54.710] Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.FailedOperationException: Backup failed for Server 'newv7\SqlExpress'. ---> Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ExecutionFailureException: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Cannot open backup device '\\Newv7\TFSBackup\temp_20110711165054.bak'.

make sure that all accounts have full control on the folder (if its a local one) and have access to the network share. i had to authorize !TFSService, TFSSetup (user to install and configure the backup plan) and the user running the sql service (network service)
I am able to set and use an UNC path in my Workspace (in Team Explorer). However, when using the Windows Explorer (any function) an error message pops up: "The path is not of a legal form." Could you please fix this? Thanks, Dany
Whenever I try to use the process editor, I get prompted with the "Connect to Team Project Collection" window. Although my team foundation server appears in the list, when I connect to it I get the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error message. I'm using Visual Studio 2010 sp1, TFPT March 2011 and connecting to TFS 2008.
I work in Windows 7, and while I do see TFS icons and TFS context menu options in Windows Explorer, I don't get the same in file dialogs/lists inside an application (the 'common file dialogs' mentioned in the Description). Can someone tell me if I'm doing something wrong, or is this a bug? This used to work in older versions of the Power Tools, and I loved this feature. Very unhappy it's not working anymore.
I have a question about the Schedules: I want to run backups at 08:00 PM. But in the wizard interface, I can only set the schedule between 01:00 and 12:59. No idea if it's AM or PM? Could you tell? Or couldn't one change this wizard's interface to be able to select hours between 00:00 and 23:59 instead ?
Another remark. When one recreates a backup plan, wouldn't it be possible to reuse the values configured for the current backup plan ? Several times I had to change the Schedules but wanted to keep the same values for "Network Backup Path", "Email To Address", etc...
I had the same problem here (Windows Server 2008 R2 english with german value and date/time settings).
After I set the PM symbol to PM (was empty) in the systems "Region and Language" settings (there is a button "Additional settings..."). The format HH:mm should indicate a 24 hour time format (other than hh:mm), which is obviously ignored in the Backup Plan Wizard...
Now it gets even worse.
I had to set my complete format setting in "Region and Language" to "English (US)", because verification failed due to an internal error parsing DateTime format.
@Martin (MS), please heed the settings of the input format in the GUI (time) as well as the code.
As previously posted and answered in the MSDN Forum on TFS PowerTools "http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfspowertools/thread/2dd68ce3-7106-496d-bc38-7be9aff7d93b"
I have had an issue where a developer had created multiple Alert Changes. This developer unfortunately moved on to hopefully greener pastures. Our security group went ahead and took down the developers AD account and reallocated the machine to another person.
The Change Alert notifications were still going all this time, and continued sending out alerts to now an unknown email address. Our Exchange group was now trying to clean up all these errors.
With the machine reallocated and the AD account gone, I then had to reactive the account. Trying to then signon to VS 2010 with a different account became very difficult if not impossilbe to do.
Trying to make a longer story shorter, I eventually found a VIRGIN machine with VS 2010 on it that I got signed on as the the user and deleted the ALERTS. Actually, it was very easy at that point.
My recommendation would be, the first is to change our processes to delete alerts before taking machine, and the second is as an enhancement to the power tools a way for an Adminstrator signon the ability to see all the alerts out there and delete them, or change them as appropriate. This would have saved me an enourmous amount of time as here the TFS Admin is not in the same area as the Security group.
Any suggestions on how this could have been avoided other than this enhancement would be appreciated though.
A workaround for this is to enable the 'Compress backup' option within the default settings of the SQL instance on your data-tier. This can be found within the 'Database Settings' section of the Server Properties dialog window.
From what I can tell with the documentation at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa395243.aspx the element 'get_latest_on_checkout' is not required in the 'VersionControl' group's 'taskXml' element, but when I load a ProcessTemplate.xml into the VS.NET editor, a null reference exception is thrown when I click on the 'Source Control' node or any sub nodes.
(I searched for this issue before reporting it but didn't find any results, sorry if it is already reported.)
