TFS project initialization

Hello all,

I'm trying to start using TFS source control for our QVWs. We are already using TFS for other things. I downloaded and installed the 32 bit MSSCCI provider, and everything is on version 2012.

I open a QVW (which lives on a file share), choose File -> Source Control -> Add Project to Source Control. It waits a few seconds, then I get the error "Project could not be initialized (depends upon function)." It created a -prj folder that contains several XML files. But I never get a pop up asking me what my TFS server is, which is what is supposed to happen next from what I understand.

Has anyone seen this error before or have any suggestions? Any help is appreciated.

-Liz

Found the issue. When installing the MSSCCI provider, you have to run it as administrator or you get the error:

"Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Team Explorer or its tools are not installed or registered. Please install or repair your Team Foundation Client Installation".

However, simply installing as administrator doesn't solve the issue for Qlikview. You have to make the file visible to 'everyone'. To do this:

1) Right click cmd.exe and Run as Administrator

2) Type in: msiexec /i "[path_to_MSSCCI.msi]" ALLUSERS=1

3) When the installer asks 'Everyone' or 'Just Me', choose Everyone

Hope this saves someone some frustration.
