TFS 2010 on Windows 8 Challenge

    Question

  • I am attempting to install TFS 2010 on a Windows 8 Enterprise base.  During the configuration of a basic environment, the Readiness Check comes back with a set of errors (posted further below).  The first one states that TFS requires IIS 6 compatibility.  So I went into Programs and Features and installed the compatibility (eventually I chose every option).  Yet, TFS still comes ups with the errors.  I went to the Windows 8 Charms' search capability and tried to filter on Internet Information Services.  The only hit I received was for the latest IIS Manager (8.0).  There was no compatibility (6.0) option.

    So what is next?

    Here are the errors:


    Error


    [ Application Tier ] TF255120: Compatibility mode for Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 is not enabled. Team Foundation Server requires this on this operating system.


    Error


    [ Application Tier ] TF255456: You must configure Internet Information Services (IIS) to use the Static Content component. Team Foundation Server requires the Static Content component in IIS.


    Error

    Thank you for your post.

    Windows 8 released later than TFS 2010, Windows 8 OS is not in the TFS 2010 support OS list. But there is no information indicates that TFS 2010 cannot work on Windows 8. TFS 2010 on Windows 8 is not tested as TFS 2010 release. If it is required to install TFS 2010 on Windows 8 in your deployment, i suggest you do a test installation first. For detail information, you can refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd578592(v=vs.100)

  • If it ran fine on Windows 7 why not Windows 8?  Perhaps you could give us a more detailed answer??
