How to Resolve Team Foundation Server Error in Dynamics AX 2012 R3

by | Updated May 1, 2017 | Dynamics AX, Set Up

I recently encountered a Team Foundation Server Error when I installed Dynamics AX 2012 R3 on a development box and was attempting to configure AX with Version Control with a 2010 TFS Server.  In the developer workspace from the Version Control menu, I clicked on Version Control Parameters.

Version Control

I entered the General information as shown:

Verson Control Parameters

And then on the Team Foundation Server form I entered the TFS specific server information as shown:

Set up Team Foundation Server

Finally I clicked OK to set the configuration but to my surprise I was greeted by this error message:

Team foundation server error

Could not load file or assembly “Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Clienit, Version = 10.0.0.0, Culture=neutrual, PublickKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ or one of its dependencis.  The system cannot find the file specified.

Hmm, I understood what the message was saying (my development computer didn’t have the TFS dll AX was looking for) but I wasn’t sure why it was missing. I (incorrectly) figured AX would have this packaged with the AX installer files.  I used my BINGfu abilities and quickly understood why I was getting this error.

I reviewed the following link. How to: Set up Developer Computers for Version Control Using Team Foundation Server [AX 2012] – https://msdn.microsoft.com/EN-US/library/gg886620

Under the heading To install the prerequisite software on developer and administrator computers I read this:

  1. Install Team Explorer on the administrator computer if it is not already installed. See Team Foundation Installation Guide for Visual Studio 2010 or TFS 2012 Install and Administration Guides for installation instructions.

Bingo! I didn’t have Team Explorer, so again I practiced my BINGfu skills (I’m very skilled at search engine martial arts), and located the download for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer 2010 which you can find here .

 

I downloaded the .iso, extracted the files and kicked off the setup by running setup.exe.

Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer

Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer

I closed and reopened AX, went back into the Developer Workspace,  again selected Version Control, clicked on Version Control Parameters

Version Control Parameters

Selected Team Foundation Server and clicked ok (previous information was retained)

Version control Parameters

Success! No error message!!

I hope this helps you out should you run into this particular error message.  And next time, I’ll read the prerequisites.
