I installed this on VS 2013 and went into Source Control Explorer > Right Click a project folder > Advanced
There are no menu items from the Power Tools. I remember this is how I did it in VS2012 the commands were under the Advanced menu item. Now they are not there?
How do I bring up the commands? I want to delete a project permanently
The "Test Attachment Cleaner" (TAC) tool is giving an error on some Team Projects. There are remnants that the tool cannot clean up. The problematic Test Runs cannot be removed. In "delete" mode, an error message like the following one is displayed: "Test result 0 of test run 11157 cannot be found." I thought that a migration from TFS2010/PowerTools2010 to TFS2013/PowerTools2013 may correct this problem but it is not the case. What is causing this problem? How can I car rid of these test runs? Is there a way to get more information about this error (TAC log files contain no details)?
When running tfpt builddefinition dump/diff commands, it generated following output:
Querying Build Defintion...
Examining Build Definition: <xyz>...
Loading Process Parameters...
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.Workflow, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
I searched for the assembly by name and found version 12.0.21006.1 under c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\
ReferencedAssemblies\v2.0 and PrivateAssemblies
tfpt.exe used was downloaded toady (12/02/2013). The MSI file's "Origin" section has "Content created" as 9/19/2013 11:16AM. tfpt.exe itself has "File Versio" 12.0.20830.1 and "Date modified" as 9/19/2013 11:46. Both are inconsistent with the posted current version of 12.0.60919.00 on 11/11/2013.
I found that the "Clone Build Definition" command is not available when the Builds pane is undocked from the Team Explorer pane in Visual Studio 2013.
Is it something that will be fixed in an upcoming release ?
I used 'tfpt createteamproject' for project creation purposes in TFS2012 as,
"CreateTeamProject /collection:collectionName /teamproject:newTeamProjectname /sourcecontrol:new /processtemplate:processTemplateName /Log:logFolder"
Now I am using TFS 2013.
In order to choose between TFVC & GIT DVC, what other argument should I be using or how would I modify the command for TFS 2013?
Please add if I miss out any. Thanks.
I am missing out on
The power tools don't support the creation of projects based on git yet. We are working on it.
When we have completed the work and uploaded a new version, you will be notified via a blog post by Brian Harry (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/bharry/) and VS ALM (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/).
Is it possible to use TFS Power Tools with the free TFS Service? I ask because i would love to use integration with Excel and MS-Project for the Work items that are at the free TFS Service Account.
Any help is appreciated, thanks
I'm using Win8.1. VS2013 Pro. After installing version: 12.0.60919.00 and coming out of hibernation, my system was kept so busy with hard disk activity that I had to power off/on to get back it. I inspected the Event log and saw several TFSShellExt alternating Error/Warning messages per minute. I got work to do so I just uninstalled it, I do not have time to figure out why.
When we try to add links in Team Links under the section Team Members, they disappear if we leave the section. Like this, add some links, select the Home section and then return to Team Members. After these steps, the links aren't there anymore. Any ideias why this happens? Could be an issue with Sharepoint?
If I remove the 2012 Update 2 power tools and install this version, my custom policies stop loading with registration errors in VS 2012, and still don't load in VS 2013.
Should I recompile my custom policies against VS 2013, keep both versions of TFPT installed side by side, or is this supposed to work without any of that?
