Eine unverzichtbare Erweiterung zum Team Foundation Server und Visual Studio. Wer eine Integration mit Windows Explorer benötigt ist hiermit sehr gut bedient. Manche Funktionen sind noch etwas hakelig, außerdem möchte ich eigentlich zusätzliche Installationen auf dem Client vermeiden, daher nur 4 Punkte.
Great extension. Tons of useful features (but there's always room for more!). Keep up the great work.
Another suggestion I would like to make is to add support for TF Database projects. When right-clicking on a .sql file, the context menu doesn't provide all of the same options as it does for .cs/.vb/.xaml files (View History, Undo Pending Changes, etc.), which sucks because we have to locate the file in the Solution Explorer to do these typical operations.
I would like to customize my work item say, Bug for capturing more information for reporting purpose. I am successfull in customizing the bug work item using TFS Power Tool for a particular Project / Application available under one project collection.
Now, i want the same customized fields to be available to the work item (Bug) across my TFS, regardless of under which the project collection it is created. How can i do it. Any help is highly appreciated.
When I attempt to run the tcmpt.exe command, my query always times out:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Test Attachment Cleaner>tcmpt.exe attachmentcle
anup /collection:http://server:8080/tfs/defaultcollection /teamproject:"Project" /settingsfile:"SampleSettings\Scenario1-SizeGreaterThan100MB.xml" /mode:
Logging output to defaultcollection_Project_2012-08-08.025115.log
..........Team Foundation services are not available from server Server\Def
Technical information (for administrator):
The operation has timed out
I'm running this against TFS 2010.
Was there an answer on this thread? We have just migrated to a 2010 server and now I’m getting the same message. Works fine in VS2010 but I cannot connect with the 2010 TFS MSSCCI Provider.
What is the solution? Downgrade back to the 2008 FTS Server?
i've got file in tfs that has 2 changesets in history:
- my changeset
- branch changeset (first changeset in the branch created by 'branch' operation)
when i call tfpt annotate on that file, it says all lines changed in latest changeset ('my changeset') which is incorrect.
it looks like this tool do not compare 'branch' changesets, i think it's a bug
I have installed both VS2010 and Lync 2013
Whenever I start VS2010 and the team members node is populated the Lync window pops up. At the same time all/most of the contacts in Lync are added as contacts or links in contacts in Outlook. The results is 10s of links and on my phine (iPhone) the same contact available 10s of times with no way of easy deleting them. :(
Any thought what could be going on here and maybe how to solve it?
Anyone know how to cleanup old servers from TFSShellExt's awareness? app log is littered with HTTP 404 errors and I can't figure out how to prevent them from being called. There is a thread here that details it pretty well, and has gone unresolved for 2 years. hope the URL works ... http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfspowertools/thread/71e02439-81b2-46a1-8dfb-405d0078f953
I'm I can check files out usign the Explorer extension but when I try to check it back in again (or undo checkout) I'm gettign an error message that Microsoft.Team.Foundation.VersionControl.ControlAdapter 10.0.0.0 or one of its dependancies can't be found.
The Assmembly doesn't appear to be on my machine at all.
Any ideas where it can be installed from?
Does any documentation exist for "Alert Explorer" that gives at least a brief explanation of the items listed under "Fields"?
I realize that some of them are obvious. I've also found that some provide a drop down box of predefined selections in the "Value" cell. For example, the selecting "StatusCode" as the field gives a drop down box of the following items:
All,Failed,InProgress,None,NotStarted,PartiallySucceeded, Stopped, Succeeded
However, not all fields are obvious, especially fields that do not provide drop down boxes. For example the field "Title". Does this mean the title of the build definition? the alert definition? etc.
Is there perhaps a more general location in visual studio documentation where these fields are explained? These are all the fields I desire to have described (even though some may be obvious):
Also, especially with fields that do not provide a drop down box, it would be useful to know the syntax requirements. For example, are values case insensitive? Is a domain prefix required when entering a user with the "RequestedBy" field? Having explicit details on the input each of field would be very nice.
If we only want to restore a Team Project Collection Database (and we don't care about the reports, the tfs configuration db, etc...), can we do it with the restore feature of SQL Server Management Studio ?
I have indeed an issue with the restore wizard of the power tools: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfspowertools/thread/debe5172-c268-45a6-a8b0-e8469ad38e31
If that is doable/valid, can we also simply restore all the other databases using that interface or will we be missing data/state ?
For information purpose, I finally did restore only one collection DB with the SQL Management Restore feature and everything works fine since...
I had no choice as I was unable to use the Power Tools Restore Wizard to do it. I did post on that problem here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfspowertools/thread/debe5172-c268-45a6-a8b0-e8469ad38e31
