Error when attempting to install v 1.5

Aug 14, 2013 at 9:37 AM
Hi all

First, my apologies. I believe I originally posed this question incorrectly as an Issue.

I am using TFS2010 SP1 CU2 and attempting to instal TFS Versioning 1.5.

I have been following the 'Simplified Install' instruction. The template files (VersioningBuildTemplate.xaml and VersioningBuildTemplate15.xaml) are checked into $/The Team Project/BuildProcessTemplates and the activity dll is checked into $/The Team Project/BuildProcessActivities.

The error occours when creating a new build definition and attempting to set the default template; neither of the checked in templates are displayd so I click on new and attempt to 'select an existing XAML file'. Upon clicking ok, VS pauses for a few seconds then a very helpful error pops-up saying "Team Foundation Error: The File Exists".


The Application Event Log on our TFS 2010 server shows the following error...
TF53010: The following error has occurred in a Team Foundation component or extension:

I have posted a question on MSDN for help, and have been advised to to ask for further assistance here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
