Okay... so in hindsight this is so stupid but I only post so it won't cause you as much time as it did me!
So I'm in VS 2005 after installing the Orcas Beta 1 and I needed to get something from the Team Foundation Server... BUT I COULDN'T! All of the context menus on the files in Source Control Explorer kept telling me that there were "No Commands Available." "I don't think so! We're not playing this game" said me to the computer. :)
Of course my first thought was that it might have had something to do with the Orcas install. So I did a reinstall of both VS 2005 and Team Explorer but it didn't help any. Aggravated now I begin my quest for the answer.
I don't know how it happened but the fix is simple: Make sure Team Foundation Server is selected as the source control plug-in. You can go to Tools --> Options (make sure you have the "Show all settings" option is checked at the bottom of the dialog) and select this plug-in.
GRRRRRR... Okay... back to productive work now.
