I was used to connect to TFS2013 from VisualStudio2005Professional. I was able to migrate the source control without any problems from VSS.

not ready for prime time; won't use local workspace; can't select which workspace to use; winds up conflicting with visual studio

    • Hi,
      any chance we can get an updated MSSCCI for VS2015 soon?
  • Compatibility issue with access 2010 source code control
    9 Posts | Last post June 05, 2015
    • Hi,
      the current version seems to be in some form incompatible if used together with the access 2010 source code control plugin.
      We use that plugin heavily to archive customer projects, but when trying to first time get a fresh access project from tfs 2013.2 into a local workspace, during which the access database is constructed by the plugin, we get the following message specific to the access 2010 scc plugin:
      "Cannot create a new Microsoft Access database from this source code control project. It contains neither a Data and Misc. objects file nor a database name file."
      Needlees to say that both files are indeed present in the local workspace after the get, but there seems to be some kind of interoperabilty issue between the access scc plugin and the msscci provider.
      Switching back the former msscci provider version 12.0.60923.0 solves the issue immediately.
      We are using version 14.0.4763.1000 of the access 2010 scc plugin.
      Would be nice to see a solution for that problem, even though we know that the access plugin is somehow exotic and not commonly used.
      Thanks, W. Andreas
    • Forgot to mention explicitly that this issue is related to msscci provider version  12.1.00402.0.
      Thanks, W. Andreas
    • w. Andreas, thank you for the info.  I was having a similar issue pulling access database applications into VM's from TFS.  Going back to provider version 12.0.60923.0 fixed the issue for me as well.
      Thanks, L. Carter
    • Wandreas1 and JCLTech, we are having the same exact problem!  
      Can I ask how you got a previous version of the msscci provider?  I can't seem to find an earlier version on the web anywhere.
    • Get the message 'Failed to create new database based on a Team Foundation project'. Currently using msscci provider version 12.1.00402.0 
      I'm looking for the previous version of TFS 2013 MSSCCI Provider (32 bit) version 12.0.60923.0   
      This should fix the issue as mentioned in
    • I have the same problem and I'd like to know how I can obtain an earlier version of the MSSCCI provider as mentioned above, or I want to know when this problem is going to be solved.
    • I seem to be experiencing the same problem as the rest of you regarding Access 2010. Is there a location to download version 12.0.60923.0 of the MSSCCI Provider? I haven't been able to locate a copy of this version online. Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.
    • Has anyone found a solution for this - or location of the previous version MSSCCI file [12.0..etc]. I am getting this error as well and can't create a local TFS copy...
    • I desperately need this version of MSSCCI provider (12.0.60923.0), please can someone send this to me.
  • How do I specify the full URL of the TFS server?
    2 Posts | Last post March 12, 2015
    • My TFS server's URL (as used by Visual Studio) is "http://server:8080/tfs".
      The Add Team Foundation Server box in this addin only allows server name, port number and protocol.
      How do I append the relative path, i.e. add "/tfs" to the URL?
    • OK. I found that if I connect to the TFS server in Visual Studio first, it shows up in SSMS. But when I try to open a solution from a folder where I know a solution exists, I get an error "There are no solution or project files in this location. Please select a different location."
      I'm using SMSS 2014 and VS 2013.
  • Compatibility with PowerBuilder 12.5?
    1 Posts | Last post March 03, 2015
    • We are planning to upgrade from TFS2010 to TFS2013. However, we recently upgraded PowerBuilder to version 12.5.  Is VS/TFS2013 MSSCCI compatible with PowerBuilder 12.5?  Are there any known issues?

    • We are getting the following message when we try to install MSSCCI onto  Windows Server 2003 SP2 :
      Microsoft visual studio 2013 team explorer or its tools are not installed or registered. Please install or repair your team foundation client installation.
      Is this related to the server not having access to MS download site? Is there a stand-alone installer (offline installer) available? 
  • VS 2013 + TFS 2013 + SQL 2014 + Windows 8.1
    2 Posts | Last post November 03, 2014
    • We have a developer’s environment that uses Visual Studio 2013 with TFS 2013 as the backend. The computer operation system is a 64-bit Windows 8.1, and we are using SQL Server 2014 Developer Edition. I have downloaded the VS TFS 2013 MSSCCI Provider 32-bit and installed it on the machine. However, the plug-in did not show up in the SSMS Source Control Plug-in Selection option list.  
      Does anyone have the same problem? Is MSSCCI Provider compatible with SQL 2014? Are there any registry hacks? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
    • It appears the issue was with the increased security of Win 8.1 which demands that MSSCCI be installed logged in as Local Admin.
  • Windows XP hosting VS 2003 ASP .NET 1.1 sites

    • I have several older VS 2003 .NET 1.1 web sites and my development machine is running Windows XP.
      Can I use this tool to connect the VS 2003 .NET 1.1 code base on Windows XP Server to TFS 2013?
    • I guess not as this tool requires .NET 4.0 framework, and my ASP 1.1 sites are not .NET Framework 4 yet.

    • I receive the next message, anyone could connect this two?
      Thank you!
      TF31002: Unable to connect to this tem foundation server: (server). Team foundation Server Url: http://(server):8080.
      Possible reasons for failure include:
      - The team foundation server name, port number or protocol is incorrect.
      - The team  foundation server is offline.
      - Password is expired or incorrect.
      I know the URL, port and stuff are OK because I could connect to this server before the upgrade.
  • VS 2008 + TFS 2013
    5 Posts | Last post December 16, 2013
    • I noticed VS 2008 is not listed with the other products that require MSSCCI, despite previous comments from Brian Harry and other Microsoft folks that VS 2008 Team Explorer support would not work with TFS 2013.  Has anyone tried this already?  Is there an update on whether or not VS/TE 2008 will work with TFS 2013, or if MSSCCI is required?
    • Matt,
      Thanks for this catch. The MSSCCI supports VS 2008 as well. I have updated the page to show this support.

    • I get a null reference exception when I try and add a server.  Can this be fixed?  I was told that I could use VS2013 with a TFS 2008 repository as long as I use the MSSCCI provider.  However, I'm not able to add the server due to the null reference exception.
    • rokeefe - I'm not sure why the 2013 MSSCCI Provider would work with TFS 2008. It's intended to target TFS 2013 and older Visual Studio clients (not the other way around).
    • I have download and installed both version 64bit and 32bit, neither is working for TFS 2013. the ERROR message TF31001 TFS returned error TFS are not avaible form the server.
      TF253022 you must update your client with the Forward Compatibility update in order to connect to the TFS

    • When will the 64-bit edition be available?  The 64-bit link shows that the software still needs to be published.
