I am evaluating an upgrade from TFS 2010 to TFS 2012 and have an error when uploading our custom process template.

Exception Message: TF201039: The name {0} is already in use by another links control. Specify a different name. (type ProvisionValidationException)

The control in question has the same name for the WinForms layout and the Web layout. TFS 2010 does not throw an error when uploading this process template. I can work around the problem by making the control names unique. I still wonder why TFS 2012 does not support duplicate names in separate layouts?

Thanks Mammatus,
We have verified this is a bug, and will work to fix it by the next release.
For now the work around is to have different names.

Edit the XML so that LinksControl names are all unique, even in separate layouts.
