Microsoft has released a hot fix for the issues that are identified after the migration of TFS2005/TFS2008 servers to TFS2010.

The issues are related to Merging and Labels:

        ·    Labels that were created before the upgrade are entirely empty.  Labels could be also have incorrect contents.

        ·   The merge wizard in Visual Studio does not display all valid merge targets for a given source path/branch.

        ·    During merging, merge candidates are shown for changes that were already merged prior to the upgrade.

If you have not yet upgraded to TFS 2010, the hotfix is now available and is highly recommended to be applied before configuring your team project collections. Because this hotfix applies to the upgrade of version control content, it must be applied after TFS 2010 setup is complete, but before configuration is started.  At the end of the setup experience, the Success screen is shown indicating the completion of the installation.  Normally, users will continue on to the configuration part, but in this case, the user need to cancel the configuration part by un-checking the “Launch Team Foundation Server Configuration Tool” box, which will enable the Cancel button.

After exiting setup, the hotfix executable can be run to update the upgrade steps. Once the hotfix is installed, the TFS Configuration Wizard will need to be re-launched from the Start Menu to complete the upgrade process. 


The hotfix has been published on MSDN Code Gallery – you can find it here:
