Installing TFS PowerShell Cmdlets

    Question

  • I cannot get the TFS PowerShell Cmdlets installed. During the install, I am not prompted to install them. And, in fact, the Typical Install text states it will not install them. After installing, then going in to modify, I do not see PowerShell Cmdlets in the list of features.

    I am on TFS 2013 Update 4 and PowerShell 4.0. How do I install these Cmdlets on the TFS server?

  • John, looks like I missed the screen telling me I needed Visual Studio or Team Explorer.  After installing Team Explorer the PowerShell Cmdlets appear to be installed.

  • John, yes, I mean the Cmdlets from TFS 2013 Power Tools.  I tried going the Custom Installation route, and they do not appear in my list of options.  And now, when I go back in and say "Modify" the only options I have (which are the same as if I were to uninstall and then run the installation and choose Customer) are Best Practices Analyzer and Test Attachment Cleaner.

    I am on TFS Server 2013 Update 4, and trying to use TFS Power Tools Update 2.  I do not need the other Power Tools, just the Cmdlets (I need to create a Post-Build script to copy external files), so if there is another way to get them that would be fine too.
