  • Hi,

    On migrating TFS 2005 project to TFS 2010, I am getting below error:

    Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Migration.Toolkit.VersionControlMigrationException: Compatibility Error: Successful migration requires a server version of 2005 SP1 or later. Please install SP1 on your server and resume migration.

    I have checked I have 2005 SP1 installed my server, but still getting this error

    Kindly help
