Crashes frequently


Hi. Thank you for sharing this tool. We really need it, but can't make it work.
The first tab works fine. The next, I can't make copy on the first half - then it crashes.
The third tab seems to make it crash on migrate, if I map something.
Then migrate crashes when it comes to testplans. It is said that it has copied the work items but hardly all of the valid ones has been copied.

We have work item types with some own fields, but I think those listed are Microsoft's standard.
We want to move from a server that is in 2008 to one in 2012.
The template on both server should be the same when it comes to work items and their templates.
I have not yet done preparations as suggested in the documentation, but if a team member or an area does not exist, is it not within reason that these are left blank It should not cause a crash.

As it is now, I can't make it work at all. It would save us a lot of time if you could explain what settings I should use, or if you could make a corrected version.

Where are the log-files?

Sorry. We've been busy with some other work. We'll look into it. You can find log files in the Log folder. Though I seriously think, problem of not copying all the work items happens by not following 'Preparing For Migration' section. Because <VALIDUSER> and <REQUIRED> tags can give serious validation errors, as there is no way to bypass these with tfs api.
