If you check the logs you will see the same message as the popup:

Application Error: 0 : [7/12/2012 2:41:32 PM] Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Migration.Toolkit.InitializationException: AnalysisProvider 06a2457f-ebba-4979-bc5f-0f5006b8b4e6 not found

Figure: Exception in Log

No new information there, but it does imply that there is a problem with the DLL, or that it is not there. I confirmed that it existed in the /Plugins/ folder but on starting a Debug session we see that the problem lies in the complication for .NET 3.5. .NET 3.5 relies on the .NET Framework 2.0 and the new TFS DLL’s all rely on .NET Framework 4.0.


This problem is easily solved by changing the application settings from .NET Framework .NET 3.5 to .NET Framework 4.0 and recompiling.

Figure: Using an older version of the framework 

Now we are cooking.

Did this solve your problem?
