Introduction

When trying to connect to Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) from IAR Embedded Workbench using an "MSSCCI PROVIDER":

  • A few seconds passes by.
  • A "server busy" error is shown.

Solution -- Use Subversion (SVN) as API

Besides using SCC, TFS can also communicate via a Subversion bridge, for example SvnBridge.

Alternative Solution - Continue with SCC

Add a new key to Windows Registry.

For Windows 64-bit the key is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider\Settings\IAR Embedded Workbench IDE\IarIdePm.exe

For Windows 32-bit the key is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider\Settings\IAR Embedded Workbench IDE\IarIdePm.exe

For this key, add a 32-bit value “issues” (without quotation marks):

issues=dword:00000001
