WORK IN PROGRESS - I WILL UPDATE WITH DETAILED STEPS SOON IF YOU HAVE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS PLEASE COMMENT AND I WILL RESPOND ASAP I have just completed the arduous process of integrating ClickOnce deployment (with the ability to have multiple versions installed side-by-side EX: DEV,QA,UAT) into my TFS 2010 build script.

Team Explorer 2010 RC Install Crash Fix
At my current client we have about 15 or so users of Team Explorer Beta 2 that needed to be upgraded to the RC client (since I upgraded the server to RC). Out of those 15 there were 2 cases of users experiencing installs that would crash after reaching the Complete/Custom selection screen. One of the users was on a laptop running XP SP 3 and the other was on a desktop running XP SP 3. After many attempts (command line install w/ supressed UI, registry changes, etc.) at getting the setup to run correctly ......

TFS 2010 Beta 2 to RC Upgrade Complete
I performed an in place upgrade of a TFS 2010 Beta 2 instance to and RC instance yesterday using this guide: TFS Beta 2 to RC Upgrade Guide The overall process was relatively smooth. There was only one hiccup at the very end of the "Upgrade from previous version" config wizard that almost had me in tears. The last step was to upgrade all exisiting Project Collections. What it seemed to do was put each collection into a queue and then falg them as being serviced. While in this state nothing could ......

Expression Blend 4 (SketchFlow) TFS Integration
Looking to the future release of Expression Blend 4 I had some questions on how things will work with TFS. The main thing Iw as looking for was work item creation based on SketchFlow screens embedded within Expression Blend itself. Well I found out the other day that the extent of this integration has been expanded on from the previous release but it isn't as robust as I had hoped. The following is the main point of the conversation I had. - You will be able to create TFS work items from SketchFlow ......

TFS 2010 Beta 2 and MS Project 2007 Integration (FieldMapping.xml)
I was running into an odd problem today when trying to add some new custom columns to a Microsoft Project project plan. These fields were driven by the values in other columns, in other words they calculated columns that used custom formulas I created to poluate them with content. I had added new fields to my project plan and validated and tested the formulas. Next I updated my task.xml to contain the new fields in TFS and uploaded that, then changed the FieldMapping.xml to reflect the mapping. I ......
