TeamCity 5.0 EAP - VS 2008 Add in does not connect

I upgraded to TeamCity 5.0 EAP yesterday and server and Agents seem to be working fine.

Today I wanted to try the latest Addin for VS 2008, so installed the new version after removing the existing one v4.5.3 (BTW VS reported an error during the uninstall although the IDE was not running, I ignored it). When finished I launched VS but all options under the TeamCity menu are disabled apart from 'Help' and 'Options', including 'Login...' and 'Logout' so I cannot connect or launch the Addin. It seems that also the toolbar buttons are all messed up with duplicate entries, and a 'Login...' button which is enabled but does nothing upon clicking it.

I tried uninstalling / re-installing & rebooting the machine to no avail.

BTW, the installer top header for the Addin still shows v4.0 rather than v5.0 but the full version numbe ris v5.0. etc



Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you have any other plugins installed for VS?

Please do the following:
- uninstall VS plugin
- start deven.exe /setup
- if it fail, start VS and check what plugin crashes it
- install TeamCity addin again

Do you have any logs of the crash while uninstalling plugin from 4.5?

Thanks!

I talked too soon, after about 4 hours since installing it the login button became available and I am now able to connect to the server.
I am not quite sure I know what made this work!

OK, I now have it running, however I can't figure out how the Local Changes screen maps to my pending changes on my local TFS workspace. I can see some but not all of the files I've checked out (all filters are uncheked).

Also, if I launch VS without any solution open the Local Changes shows the following message:"No modified files found. No version controls are enabled in TeamCity options". If I click on the link I see Source Control options for Perforce and Subversion but not TFS.

I've opened an issue for your case when no solution is opened. Please watch/vote for it at
http://www.jetbrains.net/tracker/issue/TW-9404

There is no options for TFS, because a plugin uses the same TFS settings as visual studio (Team Explorer).

Please press refresh button on local changes tool window,
does the reported changes set equals to the reported change from Pending changes window?
If not, please try File|Source Control | Refresh, than please press refresh on the local changes tab,
do changes are the same?

Will vote, thanks.

Of course, I refreshed and voila', it works

Thanks for the help, tomorrow I will try the Eclipse addin.
