Re-creating my TFS 2008 VirtualPC Instance

After lots of demos leveraging the TFS 2008 VirtualPC (VPC) trial instance released last April, I decided it was time to clean out the garbage and start from scratch. I realized, however, a lot had changed in those few short months. Now, this will be moot for this image on 12/31/2008 when it expires (and I hope replaced...please?) but here are the steps I followed (still a lot easier than starting from scratch):
  1. Update/upgrade Virtual PC client software to SP1.
  2. Apply TFS 2008 SP1
  3. Apply TSWA 2008 SP1 (uninstall TSWA 2008 first)
  4. Apply TFS Power Tools October 2008 (uninstall Dec 2007 first)
  5. Apply any custom process templates: Scrum for Team System 2.2
  6. Install the latest FxCop (v1.36) to %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Team Tools\Static Analysis Tools\FxCop
