While installing the eScrum template I ran into some pretty cryptic issues with the project management site working.  This is the site that installer ask you what virtual directory you would like to associated it with. 

The app was returning me the error:  Failed to retrieve WorkItemStore Service on server: SERVERNAME or there is no project found with name: PROJECT NAME.  The unfortunate problem with this issue is that it has nothing to do with the actual project not being found on the server, but what assemblies you have in your project. 

The readme file states: "The machine that hosts the eScrum web components will need TFS DLLs installed by either the full Team Foundation Server installation or the Team Explorer installation (the client portion of TFS)."....  OK, TFS DLLs, there are a lot of them and they are not in one location so....nice.  So after massive amounts of debugging, I have found the required list of Microsoft.TeamFoundation.*.dll files.  Here they are:

  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.dll
  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Common.dll
  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.dll
  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.DataStore.dll
  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.Cache.dll
  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.QueryLanguage.dll
  • Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.RuleEngine.dll

This list of dll's should be added along with the other required assemblies (XSS Controls, AJAX, AJAX Control Toolkit).  If you find any other assemblies needed, please place the comments here.

You also need Microsoft.TeamFoundation.dll ... I sure hope this process template it worth all the work. I've spend more time trying to get this template installed than all of TFS combined (including a fresh installation of Server 2003, SQL 2005, etc.) ... sigh. Thanks for the tip, though. Putting the files in the GAC ended up being the best solution for me.
