How to: Upgrade from Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition

You can upgrade Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition to Team Foundation Server. To do this, you must have a valid product key for Team Foundation Server. For more information about Team Foundation Server upgrades, see Team Foundation Server Upgrade Types.

After you upgrade from Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition, the membership of the Team Foundation Licensed Users group no longer controls access to Team Foundation Server, but the group will still exist. You can choose to remove members from this group.

During the upgrade, you must provide a product key. If you acquired Team Foundation Server through a volume licensing program, you can locate this key on your Volume License medium (CD, DVD, or .iso image).

For additional assistance, you can contact support for Visual Studio Team System by using the information at "Help and Support" on the Microsoft Web site.
