Connecting to Team Foundation Server
Technical Note 87817
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.
Deprecated Solution - Continue with SCC
Version 8 and later of IAR Embedded Workbench shared components do not provide SCC-integartion.
As of June 2017, IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, AVR, MSP430, STM8 have been released with this new platform, with more to come.
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):
