Offline Installation of TFS Eclipse Plugin


I was working with one client with a locked down dev environment (i.e. no internet access on dev machines). They use TFS as their ALM tool. Long story short, I wanted to install the TFS Eclipse Plugin. The following are the steps that I went through to install the plugin offline.

Download TFS Eclipse Plugin (version 14.02 is available at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=47727)

  • Open Eclipse
  • Click on Help à Install New Software


  • Click the Add button then the Archive button
  • Select the zip file for the TFS Eclipse plugin
  • Click the Open button


  • Check The Team Explorer Everywhere plugin and click the next button. Eclipse will calculate the dependency. This may take few minutes


  • Click the next button on Install Details window


  • Accept the license agreement and click the Finish button
  • Click Yes to restart Eclipse


  • Click the Open Perspective button, Select Team Foundation Sever Exploring and click OK


Connect Eclipse to TFS Server

  • Click on Connect to Team Foundation Server then click the Servers button
  • Click the Add button to add a new TFS server
  • Type in the TFS url


  • Click OK and close the Add/Remove TFS window
  • Select your team project and click the Finish button
