Task Board for Team System – Event Logging

The task board for team system includes the ability to enable simple event logging to file. This can be useful for identifying license validation failures, permission problems and performance issues.

To enable event logging your need to follow the below steps:

Create a writeable log file.

  1. Create a new text file on the host system.

    Example:          C:\TBfTSEvent.log
  2. Add the “everyone” group to the files permissions list with “Full Control”

 Edit the task board configuration file. 

  1. Close all instances of the Task Board application.
  2. Open the task board configuration file in your chosen xml / text editor.

    Note: The default installation locations are:

    Version 1 (TFS2005): c:\Program Files\Conchango\Task Board\V1\Conchango.TeamSystem.TaskBoard.WpfUI.exe.config
    Version 2 (TFS2008): c:\Program Files\Conchango\Task Board\V2\Conchango.TeamSystem.TaskBoard.WpfUI.exe.config
  3. In the configuration file, replace the following xml fragment:

    <setting name="LogFilePath" serializeAs="String">


    <setting name="LogFilePath" serializeAs="String">
  4. Save the configuration file and launch the Task Board application.

You should now see the application activity logged to the new file.
