Installing Team Foundation Powertoys on Vista


Folks have reported seeing the following error trying to install the Team Foundation Powertoys on Vista release candidates:

The work around is to download the msi (it is called tfpt.msi) and then run the following from a command prompt running as Administrator (elevated):

msiexec.exe /i tfpt.msi

We are looking into making this better for a future release.

Thanks to John Morris for finding the working around.
