SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You connect to a server that is running Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2010.
  • The server uses a Microsoft Solution Framework (MSF) template for the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) process.
  • You create or open a work item, and then you type text in an HTML editor control. The text contains a URL that is enclosed in quotation marks.

    For example, you type text in the Symptoms box on the Details tab
  • You close the work item, and then you reopen the work item.
In this scenario, the text data is corrupted if you connect to the server by using the Team Web Access mode. Additionally, many editor controls may be empty.

If you connect to the server by using the Team Explorer mode, the text that you typed in the control is truncated.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the editor control incorrectly uses a Hyperlink Reference (href) element to handle the URL enclosed in quotation marks.

RESOLUTION

You must apply this hotfix on the client and on the application tier of Team Foundation Server 2010.
