No Team Foundation Version Control client found

Hi!
Test complete does not see TFS installed. When I can still work with it through visual studio.

Got message "No Team Foundation Version Control client found." in Source control settings

TFS version 16.131.28226.3 

TestComplete version 14.0.308.7

You need to make sure you have the Team Explorer installed.  Even if visual studio works fine with TFS, you need this.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

I've read the article by the URL you've provided more carefully. TC requirements say it supports vs2012 - vs2017 when we have vs2019 installed. We can't downgrade it, unfortunately.

You can install the Team Explorer for Visual Studio 2017 on the machines with TestComplete on it and still check in/check out via TestComplete.  

Keep in mind, this is ONLY necessary if you want to use the source control features within TestComplete.  You can just not configure Source Control in TestComplete and use the Source Control tool itself.  In the past, that is what I've done... I, personally, find it a lot easier to use Mercurial HG or Visual Studio itself rather than the TC integration... just my personal preference.

Re: No Team Foundation Version Control client found

You're describing my current solution of that problem.))
We have two testComplete licenses, one is used to develop and maintain tests, an second is used for running regression nightly on the test environment. Maybe sometimes it would be comfortable to make some hotfixes with the second license. But I got used for that setup and always fix tests with the first license.
