2013 version erring out when trying to compare 2013 templates to 4.2 Team projects

Nov 14, 2013 at 3:23 PM
I am trying to upgrade some team projects based on CMMI 4.2 templates to be compliant with 2013 so they can leverage new features. The projects had already been upgraded to TFS 2010, and now reside on a TFS 2013 instance. When I open the Team Project Manager power tool and choose a CMMI 4.2 based team project and try to compare WIT definitions to a CMMI 2013 process template that I downloaded from the server, the following error is thrown:

Processing Team Project "xxxxxx"
An error occurred while processing Team Project "xxxxxx": TF400572: The Project Process Settings must be configured for this feature to be used.
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: TF400572: The Project Process Settings must be configured for this feature to be used.

Done

The "xxxxx" project is the CMMI 4.2 based team project. Not finding anything related to this error on-line IRT to this power tool. Has anyone else encountered it? Not sure why it thinks it needs a process configuration file for the 4.2 TP just to do the compare. Clearly that project was created so long ago it doesn't have that file. And we can't exactly just add it in.

Sorry for the delay, but I'll fix this in the next minor release (should be in the next week or so).

Thanks for reporting this!

With some more delay I've finally been able to release the new version which should include the fix. Let me know if the issue is now indeed resolved!

Cheers,
