Team Explorer - Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2008

I already had Orcas (Visual Studio 2008) Beta 1 and its Team Explorer Add-in installed; before installing Beta 2 of Visual Studio I uninstalled all the Orcas stuff. I am not sure if I uninstalled the Orcas Team Explorer or not.

Anyways; after installing the Orcas Beta 2; I got an error that Team Explorer Package could not get loaded; I skip the error; and continue with the installation of Orcas Beta 2 Team Explorer (which is in Team Foundation Server cd image) and after its installation; when I fired the Visual Studio 2008; I was unable to access Team Explorer. It got fixed by issuing >devenv /resetskippkgs from Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 Command Prompt. I am now able to access my 2005 Team Foundation Server from Orcas Beta 2.

I have to visit my parents this weekend...so I am done with this week's Beta 2 endeavor...Most of the time spent downloading; uninstalling the Beta 1 and installing the Beta 2...Next week will be more fun...I will be

  1. Trying to open up 2005 projects from 2005 Team Foundation Server in Orcas Beta 2; and see if they remain open-able from 2005 Visual Studio
  2. Installing the 2008 TFS with Windows Sharepoint Services v3; which is why I am more interested in 2008 TFS; it will be the first officially supported TFS to work with WSS v3; WSS v3 itself is great due to its built in support of Wikis, weblogs, RSS and what not
  3. The new Linqdatasource and Silverlight support
  4. Now that we have Go Live license; will try to upgrade one ClickOnce app from Windows Forms to WPF and see how the users will experience the pleasant change
  5. Continue exploring WPF; WWF and WCF
