VS2010 SP1 Crashing when opening a TFS2008 Build Report/Details? Here's a hotfix...

Microsoft Connect - VS2010 SP1 crashes on build details from team foundation server 2008 build explorer

"When trying to display build details from the build explorer connected to a team foundation server 2008 team project, visual studio crashes with a NullReferenceException.

Visual Studio 2010 SP1 crashes or shows the following error when attempting to view a build report on a TFS 2008 server:

"TF50316: The following name is not valid. Verify that the name does not exceed the maximum character limit, only contains valid characters, and is not a reserved name"


With Visual Studio 2010 SP1, when I tired to open a TFS2008 hosted Build Report my VS would crash. The above hotfix has fixed that...

Thanks, just had the same issue.

My first search lead right to your post where I found a solution that works.

I love when that happens.
