VSTS | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

This error occurs when a required plug-in is missing from the process template being used by the New Team Project Wizard to create a team project. Two conditions can cause this error:

  • The name of the plug-in is missing or misspelled in the XML process template file.

  • The plug-in is not installed on the local computer.

    The following procedures will help you correct the error.

To correct this error if it is caused by an incorrect reference in the process template file

  1. Perform one of the following steps:
    • If you are using a TFS default process template, ask your administrator to repair the installation of TFS.
    • If the process template is provided by another company, download the process template.
  2. Open the process template, and examine the names of the plug-ins. If possible, find the plug-in that is named in the error message. Confirm that it is intact, or correct any errors that you find.
  3. Upload the corrected process template to Team Foundation Server.
  4. Run the New Team Project Wizard again.

To correct this error if it is caused by a missing plug-in

  • Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator to have the plug-in installed on your computer, or select a different process template and try again.
