This is in continuation with my earlier blog post on installation of Release Management for Visual Studio 2013 Server. In this I would be walking you thru the installation of Release Management Client for Visual Studio 2013.

Note: we can install Release Management Client for Visual Studio 2013 on the same server as Release Management Server or any other Server.

Please review the installation guide to confirm that we are meeting the hardware and software requirement to install Release Management Client
Link for Installation Guide.

Under Manager TFS, you can click on New and add TFS Server URL
(The account you use under “Connect As” need to have appropriate permission on TFS collection. You can find more information here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dn593699(v=vs.103) )
(Remember you can multiple TFS collections added here).
