Yet, a week (or so) ago I switched to windows 7 (64 bit) which lead to a couple of issues with my development environment (feel free to ask me or share your experience with me on that topic, I’m still struggling at that point). One of these issues was that the Visual Studio 2008 SP 1 Forward Compatibility Update for TFS 2010 wouldn’t work for me.
After a long search, & several installs, uninstalls, reinstalls, etc.. I came to the following solution that worked for me & (later) for a couple of my team mates at work. Here’s what you might want to do to fix that:
- If you have Office 2007, uninstall it (I’m exactly sure if Office 2007 is one of the causes but it was one of the paths I tried)
- Reinstall Team explorer 2008 (even if you already have it installed)
- Reinstall VS 2008 SP1 (even if you already have it installed)
- Reinstall VSTS 2008 Forward compatibility update for TFS 2010 (even if you already have it installed)
Try to use the same order above, and make sure you reinstall the above stuff even if you already have them.
