Why does the CaliberRM for VSTS client hang when trying to create a connection to the CaliberRM Server?

Why does the CaliberRM for VSTS client hang when trying to create a connection to the CaliberRM Server?

Problem:

Why does the CaliberRM for VSTS client hang when trying to create a connection to the CaliberRM Server?

Resolution:

This problem may be occurring due to missing runtime libraries that are included in MS Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable Package, which must be installed in order for the integration to work properly. This package was installed by default with VS 2005, however users of VS 2008 performing a fresh installation will most likely have to install the J# redistributable package separately.

To check for the presence of this package, access Control Panel-->Add/Remove Programs and this will be listed as "Microsoft Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable Package". If there is not an entry in Add/Remove Programs, check for the presence of directory path C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Microsoft Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable Package. NOTE: This package will not be listed as a plugin within Visual Studio.

If confirmed that this package is not currently installed on the client machine, the package can be downloaded and installed from the link below. The J# 2.0 Redistributable Package - Second Edition may be used also and is recommended if you are using Visual Studio 2008 instead of VS 2005. The J# redistributable packages do not require a license, and the installation is quick and simple.

Microsoft Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable Package:

To summarize the installation Steps, the following components need to be installed on CaliberRM for VSTS client:

- Visual Studio 2005/2008
- Team Explorer 2005/2008
- MS Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable Package
- CaliberRM for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System
