I have installed Windows 7 x64 RTM in my work machine and… Surprise! Team Explorer wouldn’t work.
The settings were disabled and when I tried to connect to a server BOOOOOM!
Error: Access is denied.
Line number: 528
This is the kind of errors that I love.
After uninstalling and installing and reinstalling and again installing VS2008 and Team Client and… nothing worked.
Finally, after searching everywhere, I found in the msdn forums someone that had a similar problem. What a relieve, I wasn’t the only one (it seems a smaller problem when you aren’t the only one with it).
As a solution, K. Renno indicated to run a command to skip loading some packages:
Or to generate a report:
devenv.exe /resetskippkgs /log C:\devenv-log.txt
After that, Visual Studio could start normally without using the /resetskippkgs setting.
