We have just closed a support thread where a user was only seeing the TFS 2010 adapters in the drop down lists of the TFS Integration administration tool. Where are the TFS 2008 adapters … they are on the system, but cannot be selected and configured?

… where are the TFS 2008 adapters?

It all depends on which version of Visual Studio Team Explorer is installed on the system running the TFS Integration Tools.

  • If you have installed Visual Studio Team Explorer 2010, you will be presented with the TFS 2010 adapters.
  • If you have installed Visual Studio Team Explorer 2008, you will be presented with the TFS 2008 adapters.
  • If you have installed both Visual Studio Team Explorer 2008 and 2010, you will be presented with both the TFS 2008 and 2010 adapters.
