[CodeReviewer] Client Error When Trying to Connect to TFS2012

We recently moved from TFS2010 to TFS2012. We are using CodeCollaborator v7.1.7111. When I try to set up a code review using the Client app, I'm getting an error. I updated the SCM Configuration (pointed to the new Collection). The error occurs after I click the "Add Shelvesets" button.The Add Shelvesets to Review window pops up and then the error message pops up. The error messages states:



Error initializing local changelists.

Reason: TF249051: No URL can be found that corresponds to the following server name: [TFS server/collection]. Verify that the server name is correct.



The server name is definitely correct. We can get code reviews set up using the following commandline commands:



ccollab set scm tfs

ccollab set tfs-collection '[server/collection]'

ccollab set tfs-exe 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\TF.exe'

ccollab adddiffs <review id> <location of original file(s)> <location of updated file(s)>



Not sure if this is a configuration issue with CodeCollaborator or TFS.



Any help would be appreciated.



ccollab set scm tfs

ccollab set tfs-collection 'itappstfs.isgs.lmco.com/IT_APPLICATIONS'

ccollab set tfs-exe 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\TF.exe'

  • I have the same isuee for TFS 2010 and 2012. In 2010 it used to work from the command line but not anymore in 2012.

    We got this to work by using the following configuration:


    • Collection Name: http://tfsserver:8080/tfs/collection


    • Server Name: tfsserver


    Make sure that Local Source Code Location points to a mapped folder in TFS
