Bind Existing Project: TFS Error - Doesn't connect

Postby rmdavidson on Tue Feb 14, 2012 12:53 pm

I'm trying to bind an existing Flare 7.2.0 project to TFS, but it isn't working.

I've followed the instructions from the web help (Binding an Existing Project to Source Control), but we never see a Team Project field. When I click Browse next to the Server address (we've tried IP and URL) it says I need permission to Edit Instance-Level Information even though I have full admin access (it was changed to this after getting this error the first time or two). If I click OK at the bottom of the dialog it is telling me there is no project selected. When I add a Project Path I am told that the login failed for the server and that, "This operation is not supported for a relative URI."

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Robin

I use TFS, but I just enter the path in the Server box, and don't click Browse. If I click Browse (for the server), I can't figure out how to enter the details without getting an error.

I enter the URL in the format:

http://ServerName:8080/tfs

After that, I just click Browse for the project path.

I've done that, but I'm still getting errors. Hmm.

Thanks,

So apparently the Browse button for Server is "broken". If you click Browse for the Server Flare only puts one slash after (http:/) instead of two (http://) and that is what gets you the error Edit instance-level information. Manually typing in http://ipaddress:8080/tfs using the IP address finally worked after several attempts and 3 different paths (with spaces in the URL, %20 in the URL, and a path on the computer). It wasn't an access level issue because I had "God level access to the whole thing...you can do anything", not just my area, according to the dev. He changed it back to just my area after it connected.

Thanks for the update.
When I add the server, the Preview line displays two slashes (http://); so are you saying the connection attempt by Flare is actually just using one slash? If that's right, then it'd explain things.

Dave,

That's what the Dev said when he was trying it for himself and it finally connected. Clicking Browse uses 1 slash according to him.
