TFS Integration Tools – Issue: Sequence contains no elements

Audience

Everyone

According to TFS Integration Tools – March 2012 Release there was a fix for “Resolving VC namespace conflicts results in System.InvalidOperationException: Sequence contains no elements” in the March release. I am using the March release and:

Findings

On examining the log files it looks like the Migration Shell is trying to load the TFS 2008 VC Adapter even though we are using the TFS 2012 VS Adapter. As I do not have anything to do with TFS 2008 installed I get, as you would expect, an “Unable to load one or more of the requested types”.

Well that sucks…

Workaround

One work around that I found with the help of Bill Essary is to remove the “Tfs2008VCAdapter.dll” files from the folder so that they can’t even be loaded.

Figure: Get rid of the offending adapters

  1. Create new folder called “NOT NEEDED” under “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Team Foundation Server Integration ToolsPlugins”
  2. Move all files from “Plugins” that have 2008 in the title to this folder.
  3. Rerun action…

Woot… that solved my issue… did it solve yours?
