Instructions – Moving work items between Team Projects

Hello, I thought I would post some instructions for trying out my little work item moving utility.  Below are some screenshots that lead you through it. The .ZIP file I posted to Code Gallery should extract into an executable called WTUtil.exe.  I used WinZip 10.0 to do the compression, so you may get an ‘archive…

Moving work items between Team Projects

I’ve been writing a small utility for moving work items between Team Projects.  I just got it into a good state so I posted it on my Code Gallery project. Moving work items between Team Projects was a bit trickier than I expected.  I ran into a bunch of subtle issues like: You can’t delete…

Ahh, back from a long set of travels …

Hello, I’m back (finally!) from my launch travels!  Since my last blog entry, I’ve pretty much been heads down helping out on the 2005 Launch.  Judging by the folks I’ve talked to, this event was pretty successful!  Now that I’m finally back, I’m looking forward to more active blogging!

Quick post about Visual Studio Team System Web Testing

While I was in Europe, a customer asked me whether it was possible to extract the HTTP recording aspect of Web Testing and use it outside of Internet Explorer.  Unfortunately, that is not possible, but there is an IE power toy called Fiddler (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnwebgen/html/IE_IntroFiddler.asp) that can do generic HTTP recording.  The neat thing about this…

Workgroup authentication!

Apologies, I’m a bit of a feast-or-famine blogger [:)] I wanted to post to let you know that workgroup authentication is available in the Team Foundation Server Beta 3 release.  I’ve talked to a lot of customers who were waiting for this, so it is finally here in Beta 3! One caveat is with Team…

Rhymes with whiskey

Hello – Michael and I just got back from a VSTS tour through Europe this week.  It was a very interesting trip, and we had the chance to talk to a lot of customers. One question I got a fair bit was with regards to how customers using Visual Studio 2003 could use Team Foundation…

Team Foundation Server Beta 3 is out!!

Actually it was released yesterday 🙂  I’m on the road visiting customers across Europe with one of my co-workers so this entry is a bit late. In any case, this new build has been great so far; we are using a similar build in our customer visits right now.  I’ve got a bunch of great…

Possible version control issue …

Hello, a quick post from PDC.  I had the chance to install a Team Foundation Server Beta 3 candidate build (more on that later); I ran into a small issue with that build I wanted to blog about.  I have a solution that I’ve been carrying around with me since pre-Beta 2.    When added that solution to my new Team Foundation…

Merging conflicts in Team Foundation Server Work Items

I’m working with a colleague in Europe who is trying to put together a Team Foundation Server proof of concept (POC) demonstration.  One aspect of that POC brings to light a feature in Team Foundation Server that has been a little overlooked lately. Most of the time, when we talk about change management, we talk…
