Install problem

Sep 9, 2008 at 4:54 PM
I've followed the instructions for installing the scrum dashboard, but I keep getting a strange error.

This is on a 2003 server with TFS 2008, SP1 recently installed, SQL Server 2005, Team System Web Access 2008 SP1

Anyone seen anything like this before, I'm stuck.

Strange, I havent found any issues with SP1 yet. Can you please go through the installation steps again and verify that you did not miss any steps. Thanks.

I'll go through it again, but I've looked over it for a few hours now, and still get the same error.  Fingers crossed.

I've the same problem. I've installed the platform following the instructions in ScrumDashboard site, but this error happens when i try to access to scrumdashboard portal. Does anyone know the workaround for this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I'm having the same problem with 2.5

2.4 works fine.
