    Hello! First of all let me thank for this series. Its looking great so far.


    1) Why is the TFS snap-in being loaded? No commands from that snap in are being used on this script.


    2) Getting the following error when reaching to $workitem.save

    `Exception calling “Save” with “0” argument(s): “TF237124: Work Item is not ready to

    At line:38 char:1
    + $workItem.Save()
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ValidationException`

    Sorry, that comment should have been posted on the Day-13 post.

    I cant seem to find the delete option. I would really appretiate if an admin can delete it. Thx!

    Mostly I loaded the snap-in just as a best practice, so it is there in case I do decide to use anything. More habit than anything else.

    Concerning your save issue, are you working against a vanilla version of TFS, or one where the work item types have been modified? That errors implies to me that you have not filled out all the required fields for the work item type you are trying to create.
