Once the updates have been made please try reinstalling DevPartner. At this point it may be a good idea to enable Windows installer logging (See instructions below). If the integration is successful you can delete the log file and turn off logging, but if it is not you will be prepared to send the log file to Technical support.

If the above does not resolve the integration issue, you will need to contact Technical support. Please include an MSI install log.

For version 7.X:

cd %temp%

For version 8.0:
