Lab 02:                    Install Microsoft Office & Microsoft Project

In order to use the integration between Team Foundation Server and Microsoft Office & Microsoft Project, you need to install these products before you install Team Explorer. With Team System 2010, Team Explorer is installed as part of the Visual Studio Ultimate 2010 installer so this means we need to install Office and Project before we install Ultimate.

TFS allows you to edit Work Items with Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Project.
