Great Tool Indeed, Use it very often and its making my day to day task easier saving lots of time, well one suggestion I would like to give is tfpt getcs <changeset> command, pl. add one more functionality to that is to get the files to a different folder specified rather than to the workspace which is mapped to
Have you installed Visual Studio on this machine? The Power Tools contain server and client components. If the Visual Studio 2012 client is not installed, the client components will not be available to you.
This is fixed in QU3. In QU2 if customers have a misconfigured Reporting Services instance, the WMI call throws an exception and the Scheduled Backups wizard fails to start. QU3 has just been released and has this fixed.
Apparently something is wrong with the version detection on this package. I have vs 2012 web express edition and applied update 1 all on a newly configured machine. A prerequisites page comes up indicating that virtually all the features require "Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 or Visual Studio Team Explorer 2012". I have seen no mention of the power tools requiring the pro edition so I can only assume the detection criteria within the msi are incorrect?
I have tried installing this tool on VS 2012 Premium but after successful installation, Power tools are not visible via Visual Studio.
I cannot see Process editor and other options in Visual Studio. Please help.
I open process template successfully. But when i try to open Type Definitions\Bug, Visual Studio crashes and says not responding. Is there any log file that Power Tools write? How can i find the error?
I have our team setup to grab a work item task template from a shared directory; however, additional work items are usually created within an already existing work item - a User Story or Bug.
For example: A Bug is created from a template (accessed under New Work Item --> New Work Item from Template). To quickly add additional tasks to the Bug I want to click ALL LINKS --> New from within the Bug. Using this process will create a work item but I cannot choose a template.
I've been using Power Tools forever, and for some reason today when I open Global List from server I get a list of builds for each TFS project, and when expanded I see the builds.
No global lists to be found, but they are working fine.
What the heck?
I wiped my TFS & VS caches, ran update 4 for VS 2012, uninstalled Powertools and downloaded & installed latest, rebooted, same thing.
Any idea why I am seeing builds instead of the Global Lists (or more precisely, why I can't see my other lists)?
I am a TFS admin.
I want to search all the files (across all project teams) in Source Control for a particular string (ie: a table name). I have the Power Tool installed and when I use the Find in Source Control function it searches through my local drive and not in Source Control. How do I set it to look in Source Control?
Thank you for the info.
What controls which menu items appear under Team Foundation Server in windows explorer? We are seeing different menu items for different users even though they are in the same TFS group. For example, one user has a 'Get Latest Version' item, but another user on a different machine has 'Get Entire Workspace' and 'Get Selected Item(s)' menu options instead.
