Release Management Client 2013 Update 4- Release hangs in Pending state forever


  • Hi,

    We are using "Release management Server for TFS 2013 Update4" and "Release Management Client for VS 2013 Update4" for release deployment.

    We have been using this tool for 2 years now. All of a sudden Release Management Client tool stopped working. When we start new release it just hangs in Pending state for the first step and does not go ahead. We have restarted all the services involved and restarted servers and tried solutions provided in various websites, but nothing worked.

    Please help us in understanding the issue and let us know if there is any solution and guide to resolve this issue.

  • Hi HarinathM

    Thanks for posting here.

    This forum is about the MSBuild: Discuss the Microsoft build engine aka MSBuild. Topics including: usage of MSBuild, build customization, and MSBuild extensibility via tasks, loggers and hosting. As your issue is more related to the TFS, that forum has been locked. So I suggest that you can submit this issue on stackoverfolw with TFS tag.

    If you have some MSBuild questions, please feel free to contact us. We will try our best to give you a solution.

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation
