As I dicussed earlier MCMS is not supported with Team Foundation Server. The reason is that the developer tools shipped with MCMS are incompatible with Team Foundation Server and raise an exception when items are checked in.
This might be a significant design limitation for customers, so I spent some time to identify a workaround for this problem. The problem is caused by the developer tools integration in VS.NET 2005. To get Team Foundation Server working with an MCMS template project it would be required to disable the developer tools for this specific project. To still allow users to manage template gallery item it would be required to use a standalone version of MCMS template explorer.
Here is the list of complete steps to get the setup working:
