Following last week’s RTM announcements for Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 I have been upgrading a few PCs including one of my favorite demo virtual machine: Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server 2010 Demo Virtual Machine (patience the bits will be out soon!)
After a quick upgrade of my host demo laptop to Windows Server 2012 Standard, I upgraded my VM from Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 SP1 to Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012. High level procedure followed:
Yes no more separate Feature Pack to download! As you can see on the picture above there is a “Project Server Extensions” folder at the root of the installer.
An voila after a few minutes the TFS & Project Server demo VM is fully functional (see below) with the latest Visual Studio 2012 version! Good job product team
If you have any questions please leverage this dedicated Forum: Team Foundation Server and Project Server Integration
PS: yes TFS 2012 also integrates with Project Server 2013 Preview and that will be the topic of another post in the future…
