Team Foundation Server – Source Control – too difficult ?

I’ve worked with binary source code repositories over the last 20 years – and now I tried to switch to Team Foundation Server and I get the feeling, that this stuff is pretty difficult – and when this technology is broken – then your are in trouble …

When I tried to install TFS2010 together with VS2010 I tried to create a new project and all I got was the following error message:

Error
TF30004: The New Team Project Wizard encountered an unexpected error while initializing the Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.TestManagement plug-in.

Explanation
TF30171: The Microsoft.ProjectCreationWizard.TestManagement plug-in used to create the new team project could not be initialized and returned the following error: Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop.IServiceProvider'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{6D5140C1-7436-11CE-8034-00AA006009FA}' failed due to the following error: Schnittstelle nicht unterstützt (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE))..

User Action
Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator.

and here is the dialog.
tfs2010-error2

Any idea, what it could be ? (Software here: TFS 2010, VS2010, W7 Home Premium 64 Bit).
