Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server is nearly complete! For the past several months we've been incorporating feedback and fixing bugs to deliver this integral piece of Team System for the Whidbey release of Visual Studio.
After shipping Beta 3 (Team Foundation Server Setup Experience), and again after shipping Beta 3 Refresh (Team Foundation Server Setup Experience Redux), we asked you to complete a survey about your installation experience. The input we received was instrumental in improving that experience. As you can read in Jeff Beehler's blog (What's new in the TFS Release Candidate?), we did a significant amount of work in this area.
To ensure Team Foundation Server is ready to ship, we are asking you to respond to another survey. However, this time there is an added incentive. For the first 300 respondents who install Team Foundation Server RC, complete the survey, and submit certain log files, we are offering a special token of our appreciation. For complete details, visit this site.
Update – If the setup was successful, the log files (VSMsi*) are not in the %temp% directory. They are moved to the installation directory.
Also, you should probably review the log files before sending them in the event you need to expunge any information that would upset your local IT department, such as server names or IP addresses. Just replace them with X's.
