Installation on dev team

Jul 26, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Hi there,

we have a large team and we find the TFS policy the thing we really need.

Anyway we installed the policy on the TFS server  (Administrator) but on developers machine its giving us an error:

Winnster.CheckinPolicies.SourceAnalysis is not registered.

To use the policy, every developer shall install the MSI on their machines?

You actually don't need to install it on your TFS server, only the developer machines. Whenever you use a custom check-in policy (any policy, not just this one) it needs to execute on the machine that is checking in the code to evaluate whether the policy has been fulfilled before check-in is allowed.

Hope that answers your question!
