Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Power Tools March 2008 Release needs TFS sp1


Just saw a piece of mail about the Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Power Tools – March 2008 Release tfpt.exe /createteamproject fail with the error:

Unexpected error occurred when creating a team project.

Turns out the cause is due to a dependency on Team Foundation Server SP1 for this to succeed.  Since SP1 has not been released yet you will need to use the Beta which can be found at:

Team Foundation Server Service Pack  Beta 1

I will update the power tools website to have the correct system requirements

System Requirements

· Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2; Windows Vista; Windows Vista Service Pack 1; Windows XP Service Pack 2

· Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server Service Pack 1; Team Foundation Server Service Pack  Beta 1

· Visual Studio 2008 Team Explorer

The Best Practices Analyzer also requires:

· Windows PowerShell 1.0 (see Related Resources)

  1. Hi,

    Is this the only feature of TFPT requiring TFS 2008 SP1? The thing is, I’ve been able to successfully use the DestroyWITD and DestroyWIT commands *without* having SP1 applied. Process Template Editor works fine as well…

    So if CreateTeamProject is the only function requiring SP1, I’d suggest it is mentioned explicity on the TFPT product page so people who prefer not to install SP1 until the final release won’t be "scared off" to use the Power Tools.
