I’ve recently stopped using Live Messenger (moved to Pidgin) and one unexpected side effect of switching was TFS reminding me every time I went to Team Explorer that Messenger isn’t running with this lovely error message:
For the past few weeks I’ve been living with it, but it’s becoming increasingly annoying. So today I finally worked out how to stop it:
- Go to the Team Members item in Team Explorer and right click on it
- Select _Personal Settings _
- On the dialog there is a Collaboration setting, change the provider to None
- Be free of annoying dialog.
Hope this helps some else regain their sanity
