Help with Team Foundation Server 2008 WorkGroup Edition

I have just set up Team Foundation Server 2008 WorkGroup Edition in a single server configuration. I created a project and added 5 users to the project. Each user is able to connect to TFS and see the project I created without issue. However, no one (even me, the site administrator) seems to have access to "Add Files" to the project. The "Add Files" toolbar button is greyed out and "Add Files" is not available from the context menu on either the project or server in Source control. "Check in pending changes" is there, just not add. I am a member of the "Project Administrators" group, "Team Foundation Valid Users" group, "Team Foundation Administrators" group and the "Team Foundation Licensed Users" group.

Any help would be appreciated.

It appears you still miss  some permissions on the source control level that are not being inherited, I would suggest giving a go to TFS administration tool from codeplex

the same can also be achieved by our TFS admin from command line (visual studio command prompt ), using the TF permission command

I used the codeplex tool to set up the permissions accross sharepoint, SSRS and TFS. Could you please be more specific what I may have missed?

Ok , here is the easiest way to do it .

I installed the program from the link. However, I don't see the tool available within Visual Studio. Also, the stand-alone application doesn't allow me to sign in using a domain which I need for TFS.

Not available from Tools>team Foundation sidekicks>Permissions sidekciks ?
as for the standalone , you should uncheck use current credentials , and type your login without the domain , this is not needed if you are already logged in to this domain / workgroup.

OK, I finally figured it out. I needed to install Visual Studio 2008 SP1 locally for it to actually work.

Thanks for your suggestions anyway. The Sidekicks tools look pretty cool.
