Installing Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010-Basic Configuration Step By Step

Installing Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 (TFS 2010) is pretty simple, there are few types of installation available in TFS 2010/2012, they are:

  1. Basic
  2. Standard Single  Server
  3. Advanced
  4. Advanced-Tier only

In this installation, I am going to choose the basic installation right now (TFS 2010) and I will post the advanced installation (in TFS 2012) later! 🙂

1. Double click the Setup.exe OR tfs_server.exe in your installation media!

2. You will get the following screen after few seconds, click Next

“The type or namespace name ‘Workflow’ does not exist in the namespace ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build’ (are you missing an assembly reference?)” -TFS 2010

When I try to Deserialize Process Parameters to extract the BuildSettings, I have got the following error message:

“The type or namespace name ‘Workflow’ does not exist in the namespace ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build’ (are you missing an assembly reference?)”

But I have already added the dll to the project! (You can see the Dlls located at “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies”)

After spending few minutes on the web I have found the solution from this post! The problem of this error is that, Visual Studio 2010 sets the .NET Framework Version to “.NET Framework 4 Client Profile” in default.

So the solution is to change the Target framework to .NET Framework 4

When you change the target framework, it will ask for the confirmation, just click Yes to continue..!

That’s all, we are done with this error!

Happy TFS programming..! Thanks R./
