Problems installing TFS Power Tools - March 2008

The new Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Power Tools, March 2008 edition, may cause 1722 error when installing. There is many possible reasons for that, however one I had can be easily eliminated.

First of all you should get log file. Easiest way is to run command line: msiexec /i tfpt.msi /le log.txt All errors that happened during installation will be logged into the file. If you are lucky enough to have the same problem (if having problems can be a sort of luck), your log file will be like that:

=== Logging started: 23/06/2008 09:06:02 ===

Error 1722.There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action DevEnvSetup, location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\, command: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv /setup

=== Logging stopped: 23/06/2008 09:06:51 ===

What you have to do now, is to run devenv /setup from command line and wait till finish. To ensure if there were no errors you can run echo %ERRORLEVEL% which should return 0. After that, you can rerun msi and this time install should go without errors. I can't guarantee that trick will do in your case as good as in mine, but it's always worth to try.
