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.
Sorry if already discussed (there does not seem to be a discussion search), but would be very handy to include "out-of-date" as an overlay in explorer. Then once it's added, the next really handy feature is a configurable "refresh" period, or at minimum a hot-key association to the refresh submenu option. Having to drill up to the parent folder, right-click TFS | Refresh gets real tedius.
As others we found out that the older versions of TFSPT had some issues that in praxis meant that the backup wizard couldn't be used for backups that must support a DR *.
I see from description that, with this august drop, using the TFSPT backup wizard is all I need for complete backup? So in case of DR I will be able to restore on new hardware etc?
Of course this has to be tried out, but I'd like a comment from the authors too because this "new" behaviour is not marked as "new" in the description.
I'm glad that search has been added. I'd like to see the ability to type in a work item id in the search box and have it go straight to the work item. Much like this extension: http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/3f31bfff-5ecb-4e05-8356-04815851b8e7.
I am using VSTF power tools and was able to configure email alerts on completion of build. I might be missing something but I was not able to find any options to configure email alerts when the build starts.
From the the TFS Admin Console, when I select the Team Foundation Backup item (march 2011 version), an error "There is an error in XML document (0, 0)" is displayed. I have reinstalled several time with no resolution.
Hello? Anyone? We have spent 3 days on this and can't find any solutions. What would cause the admin console to fail loading the xml doc used for the Power Tools back up? Where does this xml file exist on the computer?
Ok finally found it! Defect-If the ConfigPT.xml file exists (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Server Configuration)but is empty, the snap-in crashes. This is the opposite of the the "fixed" defect where the snapin crashed if there was NO file.
How do you review a shelveset created by other users?
Example: User_A created a shelveset named "testshelveset". And I want to review this shelveset.
I tried the command as following and it does not work...
> tfpt review /shelveset:testshelveset;User_A
> tfpt review /shelveset:"testshelveset";"User_A"
TFPT returns the message...
No shelvesets found matching testrevue;<my_userid>
Note: I can see the shelveset with the command "tf shelvesets /owner:User_A".
One of problems we have with end users are compliants that they are receiving too many alerts. From this I then need to see what alerts are actully in place. Currently there is no place where I can see all the alerts in the database, it would be great if there is a place where I can see all the alerts.
