An excelent guide for managing requirements in VS2010 is available.
The guide is for requirements engineers, and shows us how to plan, analyse and validate our requirements
in TFS 2010 envioronment with various methologies supported in TFS.
For installing TFS 2010, we use the installation guide provided my microsoft.
However, It’s takes an effort to use it, to navigate inside this chm file and locate the step we are in during the installation.
Leo Kushnir sent me a link to a friendly installation guide by Benjamin Day.
One PDF file, with the installation steps, and with a lot of screen shots.
I got this error message by TFS configuration wizard, which ran validation tests after SQL 2008 & TFS 2010 installations:
”SQL Server Reporting Services is configured to require a secure connection, however no HTTPS URL is configured with a valid certificate. Use the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to configure or remove HTTPS support.”
It appears that reporting services management URL was enabled only in HTTPS, not HTTP.
Found a great solution by Ed Holloway here, by editing report server configuration file.
I installed visual studio 2010 RC, after uninstalling 2010 Beta 2 version.
When activated Visual Studio, got error message "Team Foundation Error. Could not load type 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.TeamFoundationServerBase' from assembly ''Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f57f11d50a3a'."
There’s a great post, by Grant Holliday, explaining the reason: TFS Object Model API changes after Beta 2.
The bottom line: Uninstalling VS2010 Beta 2 is not enough, we have to remove all VS add-ons which were built against the Beta2 object model.
I had 2 add-ons that caused those errors:
1. TFS 2010 power tools Beta 2 (According to Brian Harry, RC compatible version is a matter of days to be released)
2. Team Foundation Sidekicks 2010 by Attrice.
Note: If you try to uninstall Power Tools *After* installing VS2010 RC, It's possible that the uninstall will not complete successfuly, and you will still get error messages in VS2010. Buck Hodges provides a fix for that, by re-installing and uninstalling Power Tools.
