Red ‘x’ on Builds node…..

Number of times we have had bizarre behaviour with Team Foundation Client for Visual Studio….both 2005 and 2008…

1. Red ‘x’ on Builds node… if you closely notice it would be Build instead of Builds….

2. TF31001: Team Foundation cannot retrieve the list of projects from Team Foundation Server…..

Both the above scenarios were specific to local and specific to my workspace…. both the occasions, TFS event log, database connectivity and other basic things were just perfect….others were working good… I was able to guess its something to do locally….

I uninstalled VS, TFPT etc… and reinstalled… still it was challenging…

Finally… one of the posts helped me with the following solution… looked to be something currepted locally…

  • Rename “C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\1.0” or 2.0
  • Start –> Run : “devenv /resetuserdata”.

This will reset your Visual Studio user data… careful before trying this..
