Overview


SYMPTOMS
When you upgrade a Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server installation to Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2008 Beta 2 you may receive one of the following errors:
• "There is no team project named' in source control"
• "TF220059: The installation process cannot continue"

Installation will fail to complete when these errors are encountered.

CAUSE
• The first error, "There is no team project named' in source control", occurs when a Team Project is deleted and then re-created with the same name in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server and then the database is upgraded as part of Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2008 Beta 2 installation.
• The second error, "TF220059: The installation process cannot continue", occurs when upgrading a Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server installation configured to run using a local account to Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2008 Beta 2. The Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2008 Beta 2 installer incorrectly tries to contact an Active Directory instance to authenticate the local account.
