In Visual Studio 2013 and Team Explorer 2013 there is a bug that will cause the “What do you want to build?” combo box to be disabled and the entire Parameters tab to be blank. We have now released a patch to fix this bug: KB 2898341.
When Visual Studio 2013 and Team Explorer 2013 were originally released, the installation process required that Internet Explorer 10 or newer was installed. Today we released updated installers that no longer require IE 10.
You will get a warning at the beginning of your installation that looks like the screen shot below.
Today we have updated the TFS 2013 installation packages both on the web download page and in MSDN subscriber downloads. The reason is that we found two bugs that we wanted to address broadly. We’ve made changes to be able to catch these types of issues in the future.
