Unable to install TFSAdmin 2.1 - Setup error "2010 object model is not installed"

description

Hi. I am trying to install TFS Admin 2.1 on a Windows 7 laptop and keep getting the error "Team Foundation Server 2010 object model is not installed. Please install Team Explorer 2010 or Team Foundation Server 2010. Installing Visual Studio 2010 is not required." I have installed (and reinstalled) the TFS 2010 object model, but continue to get the error from the TFSAdmin installer every time I run it.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
Matt

Why are you using V2.1? Why not use V2.3? You can use V2.3 (with the TFS 2013 OM) to manage TFS 2010/2012/2013 servers.

Here is the check that the installer looks for:
<Property Id='TFS2013OM'>
 <RegistrySearch Id='TFS2013OMRegistry' Type='raw'
   Root='HKLM' Key='SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TeamFoundationServer\12.0\InstalledComponents\ObjectModel' Name='Installed'/>
</Property>

Hi. I tried installing V2.3 but unfortunately get the same error about the object model. I confirmed that I have the following entry in my registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TeamFoundationServer\12.0\InstalledComponents\ObjectModel [Installed = 1]. Any other thoughts?

I got the installer to work finally! I had to run the installer as admin (even though I am an admin on my machine). I found an article on google to force the msi installer to run as administrator: http://www.howtogeek.com/178826/how-to-force-an-msi-package-to-install-using-administrator-mode/
