TFS Upgrade 2005->2008

Aug 6, 2009 at 3:20 PM



I currently have a TFS 2005 installation and I'd like to start using team review.  I'm also planning to upgrade to TFS 2008 at some point in the next 3 months or so.  Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade Team Review as part of the process, or should I install Team review after the TFS 2008 upgrade?

Hi Rik -

The Work Item Type definition in the 2005, 2008, and 2010 downloads if TeamReview is exactly the same - so when you upgrade TFS from 2005 -> 2008 -> 2010 there is no extra TFS work for TeamReview, it will still have the right Work Item Type Definition.

Now if you are upgrading your Visual Studio Team System client from 2005 -> 2008 it's a different answer since the addin won't get upgraded. You'll need to install the the TeamReview addin version for your new VSTS client. IE if you upgrade from 2005 -> 2008 you'll have to install the 2008 addin.

Hi jbbrown

Thanks for you reply, this was just what I was looking for.  It was the server aspects that I was most concerned with.
