    I cant seem to get it to work

    I tried http://:8080/tfs/ as well as http://localhost:8080/tfs/

    It cant seem to find my team project. My project name is “TestProject1” the server name is e6400win7\SfTFS Collection. My url http://localhost:8080/tfs/
    goes straight to this collection. When I inspect the line in the tool code: Project proj = store.Projects (line 56) I get a project count of zero. I have two projects in my collection Any ideas? Perhaps I go the nameing convention wrong when specifying the path to my project TestProject1.

    As “TFS Collection URI” you need to type something like http://localhost:8080/tfs/

    (in your case http://e6400win78080/tfs/SfTFS Collection)

    Note: if you do not explicitly specify a collection name in the URL, the default collection will be used, which – in your case – obviously has no team projects.

    The “Team Project” then would be just “TestProject1”.
