TFS error: 'Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.ControlAdapter, Version=' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Ranorex 7.2 on Windows 10.

    We are using VS 2013 Express Desktop update 4 with the 2013 version of the MSSCCI plugin. When I try and link Ranorex to TFS (which can be done from inside Ranorex), I get the following error popup in Ranorex: 'Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.ControlAdapter, Version='. As can be seen in the attached screen grab, it points at an invalid pointer. Has anyone had this error appear when trying to link VS & Ranorex, or any other 3rd party app?

    I have even tried rolling back to VS 2012 with the 2012 MSCCI and all that changed, was that the 'Version' mentioned in the error went from to I am now back on VS 2013 with the 2013 MSSCCI. Based on a post on the Microsoft forum, I have also installed VS Remote Tools and VS Agents, but this has not fixed the problem.

    As far as I'm aware, the company is using TFS 2016, which I would assume is fully patched and updated.

    Any clues, pointers and suggestions that anyone has would be most welcome.

    Cheers James
