  • Hi Md,

    Thanks for your post!

    You can install Team Foundation Server 2010 or 2012 on a client computer that is running Windows 7 (Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Ultimate). If you install TFS 2012, you need install Windows 7 SP1. However, Client operating systems do not support integration with SharePoint Products or the reporting feature. If you want to use either of these features, you must install Team Foundation Server on a server operating system.

    The Team Foundation Installation Guide is a great resource for installing TFS.

    TFS 2010 Installation Guide: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24337

    TFS 2012 Installation Guild:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29035

    After you download the installation guide, you cannot view its contents unless you right-click the .chm file, click Properties, and then click Unblock.

    Hope it helps!

    Best Regards,
