I was asked by quite a few people about the proper location of the wicc file and the dll file of the custom control in different versions of Windows. The answer is quite simple.

If you add Custom controls for the first time you should remember, Application Data / ProgramData are hidden folders and that some of the folders are to be created by the user.

The Location in Windows XP is:

TFS 2005: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls

TFS 2008: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\9.0

The location in Windows 2003 is:

TFS 2005: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls

TFS 2008: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\9.0

The location in Windows Vista is:

TFS 2005: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls

TFS 2008: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\9.0

    Hi Mike,
    I am getting error: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\9.0\TestStepsControl.wicc'.

    I tried to find the control on the server but it is not available on server / my machine.

    I try to down load CTP (Nov 2007 / Apr 2008) none of the CTPs were available for download. But I do fine one for TFS 2010, I need for TFS 2008.

    Please guide me in resolving the above issue.

    Sanjay

    Hi Sanjay,
    Please make sure that you can see hidden files and libraries.
