Text Lines Should Not Be Null Schema Compare

Text Lines Should Not Be Null
Schema Compare Error in Visual Studio
DACProjectSystemSetup_enu.msi

For the last 30 minutes I'm getting crazy trying to understand  what the error "text lines should not be null" means, and why it happens every time I try to compare databases schema in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.

It appears like my installation of the VS 2010 didn't execute correctly, so I have several packages missing.

A small package called "DACProjectSystemSetup_enu.msi" was probably missing.

After installing it, I can compare data and data schema easily :)

The Package is available here.

Hope it helped,

The Path is Already Mapped in Workspace

The path is already mapped in workspace error.
The path x is already mapped in workspace.
Error The path is already mapped in workspace. 
TFS 2010 Mapping Issues.

I've lately reinstalled my TFS 2010 and after do so, I encountered an extremely annoying error:
"The path is already mapped in workspace".

I searched for almost everywhere, I tried changing Visual studio files and nothing.
It was only then I found out where was the problem - in my Team Foundation Cache.

After realizing that - the rest was fairly easy.
Simply go to this folder: C:\Users\{UserName}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Team Foundation\3.0\Cache and delete all that's in the folder.

This was a rather quick solution to a problem that was keeping my mind busy :)

Hope it helped,
