Team Foundation Server | TFS 2010 | Visual Studio 2010

Unable to find appropriate display filter for file extension ".docx". Add a mapping into MimeMap.XML file under App_Data folder.

by XDK 10. August 2012 20:33

Explanation


Expected behavior in TFS web access as there are no display filter for MS office files. There are only three default display filters configured to open plain text (.CS, .proj etc.) and images on the browser. The display filter is used to display files on the web page. For the other kind of files, TFS web access cannot display them in the web page, instead it provides link for user to download it.

Reference

MimeMap.XML location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010\Application Tier\Web Access\Web\App_Data

    <Extension name=".doc" content-type="application/msword"/>
    <Extension name=".pptx" content-type="application/vnd.ms-powerpoint"/>
    <Extension name=".pps" content-type="application/vnd.ms-powerpoint"/>
    <Extension name=".pdf" content-type="application/pdf"/>
    <Extension name=".docx" content-type="application/msword"/>

“General Settings” in the ribbon --> Under Maximum Upload Size, change the setting to the desired value (e.g. 150 MB) --> “OK”
