Office hours are back!
I think the folks at Borland have finally removed my StarTeam blog. With the inception of CodeGear, CG seemed to take over the blog server, and removed me.
I honestly haven't touched it since leaving Borland, but several former colleagues and customers have emailed me wondering if the content is still available somewhere (I had a lot of how-to's and SDK samples posted). I honestly don't think it's archived anywhere, but I've asked the CodeGear folks via email, and will post the URL if it's still posted somewhere.
Are you kidding me? People are using blogging, this great communications medium, to play TAG? So let me get this straight: I mind my own business, don't over-blog because I try to only post meaningful stuff here, and now because I've been "tagged" I need to reveal 5 things about myself. All thanks to Grace Francisco.
In the interest of keeping my friends my friends, I’ll end the madness with me and not tag anyone else (at least for now).
I get asked this question a lot. You download the latest and greatest version of the guide, open it, and you can't access any of the help items!
This is because the .chm file (the installation guide help file) is "blocked" for security reasons. To resolve this, simply right-click on the file and select Properties. You'll notice that there is an "Unblock" button at the bottom.
Click that button, and click Ok to close the Properties dialog. Lastly, re-open the installation guide and you should be set!

The TFS install guide is quite comprehensive. It covers walkthroughs & checklists for both single- and dual-server deployments, system requirements, security, and install guides for the Build Server, Proxy, and Team Explorer.
