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.
When I create a new branch in TFS, I have to pick one of three choices: branch from the latest version, date, or changeset. But, after the branch is created, I lose track of what option did I pick and what value. For example: If I branched from changeset, how can I find the changeset number after the branch is created?
I have experienced an issue where the transaction log files get full on the TFS server. I posted on the MSDN site, and the reason for this problem is explained here http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-ZA/tfspowertools/thread/fb69721a-b530-4ce3-ab98-b7da92032386.
Is there a work around for the log files getting full, and will in be fixed in the next verson of the power tools?
If the share you select at the first step has any space in it the Verification of the Grants (last step) will always fail independently of the real security properties of the shared folder.
in other words: \\server\Team Studio Backup
or: \\server 1\backup
will ALWAYS fail
will be checked correctly.
To find this took me a while, hoping it helps others till it is fixed
I have been trying to use TFPT at the command line with both the scorch and treeclean commands, but each time I attempt to execute the command, I get an error message stating that "TF30063: You are not authorized to access <TFS Server>\DefaultCollection". I am currently logged into my TFS Server using Visual Studio 2010 over a VPN session. When I launch Visual Studio 2010, I am prompted for login credentials and I can therefore access TFS via Team Explorer. In addition, I know that the tf command supports passing a /user switch in order to ensure that user credentials are passed, but how do I force TFPT to also recognize these credentials since the /user switch does not seem to be supported nor accepted as a valid switch?
I just want to ask if there is an easy way to get the latest version of a version controlled folder using the TFS's Team Foundation Power Tools?
I am using the "scorch" command, but it doesn't overwrite the local files with the newer ones from the TFS. Is there any other command that is more appropriate for my case?
I tried the "GetCS Command" but couldn't figure out how to get the "latest" changeset. In my scenario I just need to update(overwrite) the local folder with the latest version of it from the TFS (pretty much the same as the "Get Latest Version" command from the "Team Foundation Server" context menu).
Is there any way to achieve this using the Team Foundation Power Tools?
I ran the Best Practices Analyzer on a client machine and I got this warning
Cannot ping the specified Team Foundation Server
Cannot ping Team Foundation Server at address: "%TFSServerURLValidated%".
I checked the ping on the name of the TFS server and it succeeded.
So how to fix this warning ?
Once I installed power tools, I lost parenthesis highlighting for "(" and it doesn't even complete it for me. I tried uninstalling Power Tools as well, but it doesn't show up as an installed program in my Control Panel. Is there a way to either get these features back up or uninstalled Power Tools for TFS 2010?
I ran into an issue using the Sep 2010 version of this TFS 2010 Backup/Restore tool... It is unable to locate the Reporting or SharePoint Databases. Reporting Services is running on the same machine as TFS. SharePoint 2010 is hosted in a seperate SQL Server in a different box (which is very much accessible from the App tier machine where the backup plan is being created)? Any pointers?
The top of the description tab says 'The following table provides links to access more information about each power tool included in this release.' I can't get the links to work, I would like more information about the Backup tool, as I am having great difficulty resotring a backup and probably need to read the documentation.
