Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2015 Process Editor errors

As we know that Visual Stuido 2015 and Team Foundation Server 2015 has been released, when I started working with the new TFS Power Tool, I found that there are some errors comes with the Process Editor tool.

If we try to customize some types of the work-items, we might see the following error:
Control ” references a non-existing field System.ID.
non-existing field System.ID

We just need to change the name of the control to the right one with the small letters as the following:
Wrok-Item System.id

Another error:
VS402479: You can’t overwrite the Scrum process template, because it’s locked. For more information about customizing process templates, click ‘Help’.
VS402479 You can't overwrite the Scrum process template, because it's locked. For more information about customizing process templates, click Help.

We just need to generate GUID and add it to the ProcessTempalte.xml file as the following:
GUID for TFS Process Template

Another error that Reason field is read only for the Product Backlog Item, so no matter what you added extra reasons, it wouldn’t appear, to fix that we just need to change that to false, see the following image:
ProductBacklogItem layout
