How To: Disable the Team Members Feature
If you installed TFS Power Tools 2008 you will see couple of new features.
One of the features called – "Team Members" that allows you to collaborate with your team even better. One of the features is integration with instant messaging that allows you to see presence, IM, video, audio, etc from inside Team Explorer. You can read more about the feature here:http://blogs.msdn.com/bharry/archive/2008/10/01/preview-of-the-next-tfs-power-tools-release.aspx.
There is a lot of problems with that plug, for example the load time can be excessive…
And this error….
There is two ways to disable Team Member feature:
1.Visual Studio Options
Open Visual Studio –> Tools –> Options –>Team Foundation Server Power Tools –> General, then set Team Members to False.
Open Run and write “regedit”, navigate to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\TeamFoundation\PowerTools
Add a new String Value named TeamTrackerHidden and set its value to True.
