Hi folks,

I am using a 2-machines setup.

Machine A has TFS 2008 SP1 + TFS Connector installed on it

Machine B has PS 2007

Both machines have the vcredist_x86 installed.

All machines are windows server 2003 enterprise (1 hard, 1 vm), all updates/service packs.

sql server is mssql 2005 sp3 + cu

 

I have 1 domain-account with local admin rights and sql-rights and everything like that to be the connector-account. i installed connector - success. i installed ps2007 component - success.

when installing the tfs component on the connector-machine, the setup terminates with that error-display "... please see log..."

 

the log doesnt log any error:

< 12:00:08 >CheckServiceUserIsEmpty

< 12:00:09 > CheckEmptyString Started
< 12:00:09 > CheckEmptyString Completed
< 12:00:10 >TFSComponentInstall

This is the whole(!) log. No exception.

Accessing the connector homepage brings something like: This operation could not be successfully performed. Please contact the administrator and refer to HandlingInstanceID: df84d5f5-d23d-4d0b-953e-9db09b81074c

 

Eventlog:

MsiInstaller

Product: Microsoft Project Server 2007 Connector -- Configuration failed.

 

Need help :) Thanks in advance,

Regards

Problem solved.

The error occured on installing the tfs-templates (english) on a german tfs. installing wss sp 1+2 + english & german language packs for all servicepacks solved the problem.

after that i needed to change the language code in "msf agile for ps - v42" from 1033 (eng) to 1031 (ger), to prevent that error of "unable to locate information file - stuff"

 

regards
