I tried converting a local project into a TFS project with following steps

  1. Copy the Project folder from the local Project Location to the TFS Project Location on the disk.
  2. Remove all files that end with *.deleted (recursively in all subfolders)
  3. Remove the following files: a. User.config b. BatchChange.config c. LocalChangeLog.chx d. PublishedChangeLog.log
  4. Update the Location tag in Project.config to the appropriate name
  5. Check-in the Project folder into TFS

When I try to change view elements Im Getting the following error message: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException: The constructor to deserialize an object of type 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client.IdentityNotFoundException' was not found.

Please use TFS 2013. We are in the process of upgrading the later versions of TFS.

Thanks Chris TFS 2013 works.It would be helpful if you could enable azure devops connectivity also so that we can host the tfs on azure.
