This solved my problem. If you are after enforcing code-commenting, then download and install this program. Add the new "policy" that is now available in Source control and restart Visual Studio. Users now have to enter comments.
Does TFS Backup create a table for marking transaction, similar to the backup how-to using marked transaction on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms253070.aspx?
I'm testing both the Power Tool Backup and Maintenance Plan methods and just noticed the table tbl_TfsTransactionLogMark already created for TFS/ReportServer DBs backed up by Power Tool.
I would like to know if it is possible to use the functionality offered by the Work Item Templates not only in the Team Explorer but in the Web Access as well. How is it works? From Where?
thanks in advance!
How would I resolve the below error? From some of the research I have viewed it tells me to change the regional settings under the user within the Registry?

Thank you for TFS Power Tools March 2011.
I am running:
Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Visual Studio 2010 Premium (as Administrator)
Office Communicator 3.5.6907.221 (as Administrator)
But the status icon of myself and another Team Member is not accurate.
It shows up as white, indicating the contact is offline, but this is not true.
Other team members' status show up without issues.
I believe this started happening since installing the latest Office Communicator 3.5.6907.221 from here:
The other team member also installed the hotfix.
We found out that we have to remove the "IM User" and "Email" field values in "Team Members > Personal Settings > Instant Messaging" in order for other member statuses to be accurate. But I still cannot see my own status, but this may be by design.
Could it be possible to have a right-click option in the Find in Source Control screen to go and compare the currently identified file or files to another one? This would be useful for us to see the on-going changes between two teams.
When I try to backup TFS it gives me the error below on the last step.
I dont understand since in the account I put a global domain account with full permissions...
Could you give me a hint? Thanks

When I create a new branch in TFS, I have to pick one of three choices: branch from the latest version, date, or changeset. But, after the branch is created, I lose track of what option did I pick and what value. For example: If I branched from changeset, how can I find the changeset number after the branch is created?
I have experienced an issue where the transaction log files get full on the TFS server. I posted on the MSDN site, and the reason for this problem is explained here http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-ZA/tfspowertools/thread/fb69721a-b530-4ce3-ab98-b7da92032386.
Is there a work around for the log files getting full, and will in be fixed in the next verson of the power tools?
