"New Code Item" is available but does not work

Aug 10, 2010 at 3:44 PM

I have just installed TeamReview_2008_1_1_3.zip on a Server 2003 machine along with the TeamReview_2008_1_1_3. The template install on the TFS server did not error, the client install succeeded as well.

I am connected to TFS and have a solution open.

From the Team Menu, "New Code Item" is available but does not work.

If I highlight code, right-click and choose Team Review -> New Code Item, I receive a message box with the following text:

TeamReview is the most complete solution for Team System Code Reviews: a specific work item type and a Visual Studio add-in for a completely in IDE code review experience.
To use TeamReview Visual Studio must be online, a Visual Studio Solution must be open and within a Team System workspace mapping. Additionally Team Projects that that will store work items must have the Code Review Response work item type.
To setup a Team System project for TeamReview usage please use the following directions from the TeamReview codeplex site.
Thank You,
TeamReview contributors

And no log in installation dir.

Note: Solution should be open in order to get "New Code Item" form, otherwise you get message like this.

Same Problem here.

However, the solution IS opened. Although the instruction window comes up as if the work item types were not there. One other thing worth mentioning: I needed to import the german localized version of the work item templates. Those are heavily broken! Most translations simply don't match the correct keywords. After fixing all translation errors, both templates could be imported.

It is still not possible to create a work item from the context menu.

Again: The solution is opened.

Is there any way to find out what's going wrong here?

Has the work item import correctly worked? Are you able to create a "Code Item" work item from Visual Studio for the Team project you are working with? (Visual Studio Menu's - Team -> New Work -> Code Item)

Yes, I do. Thank you.

Please check that the solution is checked-in and bound to the TFS team project with the code review work item definition.

Are there any messages in the output window when you open a solution?

Check for any exceptions in the team review log file in the installation directory (it will not exist if exceptions have not happened).
