Pointing a copied Iteration Backlog.xlsx to a different Team Project

If you ever copy the Iteration Backlog.xlsx file from one Team Project to another (usually because you are upgrading an old Team Project to the TFS 2010 templates), then you probably get one of these errors:

“T80076: The data in the work item is no valid or you do not have permissions to modify the data. Please correct the problem and retry.”

“TFS208103: The initialization of the workbook to connect to Team Foundation Server was not successful….”

You need to reconnect the spreadsheet to the right place.

There’s instructions on how to do that: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff452586.aspx (almost all the way down), look for “To bind the Iteration Backlog workbook to the Iteration Backlog query”.

    Is this possible through MTM2013 using TFS2010 ?

      No, this is a TFS Feature not an MTM feature, so you need TFS 2013

    When I select Test Case chart, nothing appears in the Group by drop down. Why not?

      Bruce, make sure that before you try to do charts, you go to the Test tab, then click on Column Options, and add the columns that you want to group by. The charts only act on the data that is displayed on the grid.

    Is there any way to update string in test steps of multiple test cases in one go, like ctrl+h?

    I thought that packages restored to the C:\Users\{user}\.dnx\packages directory? I don’t have the test adapter DLL in my bin folder. In fact, I don’t even have a bin folder.

    Did anybody have the following error:
    Exception discovering tests from Test1: System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly ‘C:\a\ff22bda8\xunit\Test1\Test1\bin\Debug\xunit.execution.desktop.dll’ or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.
