Team Foundation Server 2008 Install

With the up coming future place in IT for TFS 2008, you might run into an issue installing this on Virtual PC 2007. I have not had the chance to test this on Virtual Server 2005 R2. I kept getting error 28002. an unknown error has occurred. Install log is pretty clean from what I could find.

Make sure you follow the install guide from microsoft.
Here is a summarized list for an install.

Single Server Install


  2. Install Windows 2003 /2008 and join to domain

  3. Grant TFSSERVICE and TFSSETUP users to the administrators group

  4. Login in as TFSSETUP

  5. Install SQL Server 2005 Standard or Enterprise

  6. I would install all the services but notifications services (Select do not configure reporting services)

  7. Install SQL Server SP2

  8. Reboot

  9. Install TFS 2008 with Sharepoint 3

I didn't get error 28002 installing on a server. It might be that Virtual PC 2007 does act differently then Virtual Server 2005 R2.

I found this nice MSI logging registry key to enable verbose logging.
Thanks to this blog:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
