The July CTP release of Visual Studio Team System is really a step foward from the Beta 2. Performance, polish and reporting are some really big improvements.
That said, it has a few blemishes. I'm trying to put together a VPC image of our July CTP, so I've had to work through a few of these issues. As I do so, I thought I would aggregate the workarounds - provided courtesy of others - that I've found.
Here is my list so far:
Creating a new Test Project results in a null reference exception
The quality tools product team posted a quick fix for this problem at: https://blogs.msdn.com/vstsqualitytools/archive/2005/08/09/449268.aspx. I chose the 'fix' option and it worked well for me.
Team Foundation Alerts do not work for check-in notifications
This issue was noted in our forums: http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=74842. See Bhavik's solution at the end of that thread.
Null reference exception when viewing the History of a node in Version Control
For some odd reason, only one of my projects in Version Control was affected by this. Whenever I try to view a history from the root of this folder, I get a null reference exception. The fix is described below:
SET ownerid=<use the appropriate owner id>
WHERE changesetid=<use the appropriate change set id from the query above)
SET commiterid=<use the appropriate owner id>
Team Foundation Build is not working
Ah, this was pilot error :) I thought I had set permissions correctly the first time, but I tried again and Team Build is now working for me.
