Problem: Running the IBM Rational ClearQuest to Visual Studio Team Foundation work item tracking system converter (CQConverter.exe) with the analyze command (/c:analyze) throws an exception.

Workaround: You will not be able to use the CQConverter to analyze and generate a schema of your IBM Rational ClearQuest database. Neither will you be able to use the analyze command (/c:analyze) to generate the required field mapping and user mapping file. To migrate the work items from IBM Rational ClearQuest to Visual Studio Team Foundation, you will need to manually create a schema in the Team Foundation work item tracking system, and then manually create the schemamap file, field mapping files & user map file. See the converter walkthrough in the product documentation for examples of these files. After creating the schema and the required files, you can then use the converter to migrate the work items to VSTS using the migrate command (/c:migrate).

Applicability: Visual Studio 2005 Team System December 2004 CTP
