Visual Studio 2010 Error On Source Control Explorer

March 8, 2012


Today I’ve encountered a strange error when opening the Source Control Explorer:

Team Foundation Error

Method not found: ‘Boolean Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client.Workspace.OwnerNameMatches(System.String)’.


That denied any use of the source control.

I’ve tried re-applying Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and TFS 2010 SP1 but to no avail.

Eventually, only after a complete uninstallation and reinstallation of Visual Studio 2010 SP1 the error has gone. Hmmpf.

    I’ve got the same error. And reinstallation of VS 2010 sp1 wont help. Any idea?

    @Ruberoid I’ve found that neither repairing nor reapplying the SP1 of Visual Studio was enough. By complete reinstallation I mean:
    1. Uninstall Visual Studio 2010 SP1
    2. Uninstall Visual Studio 2010
    3. Install Visual Studio 2010
    4. Install Visual Studio 2010 SP1

    The compatibility patch does nothing for this problem. Don’t waste your time. This is a bug in visual studio 2010.

    I agree with Aaron. I started having this error in VS2010 after installing TFS build services on our build server. Installing the patch has not solved it.
