Discover users without Visual Studio SP1 installed

Far too often people install Visual Studio SP1 before Team Explorer 2008 and therefore TE remains unpatched in the RTM state.

Luckily the ambitious TFS Admin can use the TFS Server Manager from the Power Tools package (TfsServerManager.exe in the Power Tools folder) to find those users without SP1:

Check for VS 2008 SP1 from the server

Open "Completed Requests" in TFS server manager.

Open Completed Requests

Choose "devenv.exe, 9.0.21022.8" (= RTM), devenv.exe, 9.0.30729.1 stands for SP1.

Choose devenv.exe as application

Click "Run Query" and look at the User and Client IP columns to identity your colleagues:

Run Query 



Visual Studio (devenv.exe) Version Numbers:

  • devenv.exe 9.0.30729.1 – Visual Studio 2008 SP1
  • devenv.exe 9.0.21022.8 – Visual Studio 2008
  • devenv.exe 8.0.50727.762 – Visual Studio 2005 SP1 (?)
  • devenv.exe 8.0.?? – Visual Studio 2005
