when you strat installing Team Foundation Server as a part of VS Team System edition,you have to know some tips:
1- the pre-requisites for FS (Foundatiuon Server) such as : SQL 2005,.Net 2.0,WSS 2.0.
2- create different accounts to be used by FS (one for FS and should be duifferent than the logged in user,plus one for using sql 2005 reporting services.)
3- configure e-mail notification (Alerts),by putting the SMTP Server.
IMPORTANT NOTE :
Since the WSS 2.0 is a pre-requisities to FS,WSS 2.0 is by default is installed on MSDE (MS Desktop Engine),YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE WSS TO STORE CONFIGURATION & CONTENT DBs to the SQL Server DB,TO DO THAT YOU HAVE TO INSTALL .net 2.0 HotFix before installing wss 2.0.
contact me for any help regarding FS installation :)

This post is not related to the technology or related to the development,but i want by this post to show some unclear points which all of us were met in our work environment.
i met alot of developers or IT staff who don't know are they fit for technical or management position? it's hard for them to know ? since they haven't been directed by on of the professional management staff,it's not their problem since they didn't study or read or even the environment let them to know these things.
I want to mention some messages to all readers:
1- Management isn't for everyone.
2- You have to ask oyur self these questions :
* Do I want to control more technical decisions?
* Am I interesting in fixing technical problems than people problem ?
if your answer is yes,then you will be more comfortable in a technical leadership role that mangement role.
3- You have to ask oyur self these questions :
* Do I like working with people ?
* Do I like Coaching and monitoring people?
* Am I willing to learn how to provide feedback and have diffuclt conversation with people ?
if you answer is yes,this you will be fit to play a management role even now or in the future.
4- Set with your manager and share your ideas and thoughts about all your activities and your vision to your department.
Tell me your feedback ? what do you think ?

if you tried to wirte Response.redirect() in Global.asax you will get this error :
Response is not available in this context."
to resolve this problem,just replace :
the problem happens because of the Response.Redirect is working if there's a HTTP handler for the current request,which is not the case in Global Errors raised in global.asax.

Failed to enable constraints. One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique, or foreign-key constraints.
since the developers are the only persons who are facing the first problems for any product and they have to find out a workaround for any thing or problem they face it.
this post to solve one of the major problems in dataset in VS 2005,as mentioned on the Post title.
the solution for this problem is to just add a new Table Adapter in your Dataset and configre it again,to minize the time,and not to waste the time for remembering which stored procedure or view you had changed.......
Cool Tip.......... :)
