For those of you that build MSIs to package your applications, you'll quickly find that MSBuild does not support this, so the TFS Build Server cannot build your vdproj setup projects. Anutthara Bharadwaj has a good post with the workaround for this. Pay attention to the part about needing Visual Studio installed on the build server - if you're like ......

Since Mickey Gousset raised a good point in his comment on my previous TFS post, I've been looking into this further. I was going to post my findings from the current licensing white paper, but Chris Menegay basically said what I was thinking. “Anyone editing data will require a CAL“ What exactly does that mean? I hope they add clarification ......

Synchronizing your machine keys is a great way to provide a single-sign-on experience when using ASP.NET Forms Authentication. This tells ASP.NET a specific key to use when encrypting/decrypting the ticket, and when multiple servers or applications use the same keys, they will accept the ticket generated by the inital login.

One of the key things I feel is missing from Team Foundation Server is access to managing certain things, specifically Work Items, from a web-based interface.

Most of our we service projects also seemed to convert into the new Web Site project format with little effort. The front-end project, however, has proven to be a major ......

Nice surprise this morning!  I think it's safe to say I won't be sleeping much this weekend.

I just want to say for the record that the last five minutes of Ingo Rammer's session this afternoon might have been the most valuable of my entire week. My team is deploying a new system next month with Web Services making up a number of components. Obviously, we have not done any load testing of this system yet because it most definitely will not ......

Well, I've been a .NETophile for over two years now - about time I jumped on the blog bandwagon...and about time I made it to Tech-Ed! I spent the evening trying to sift through all those sessions and figure out which ones look the best. Then I went to work on the laptop. I finally busted open that 3.6 gig ISO that I've had in my temp folder for awhile, ......
