I have a VS2005 solution that is in Sourcegear Vault. I would like to migrate it if possible.
If not, can someone please tell me how to import the solution from my work directory. I would believe that the solution will initially look for vault, but I would then need to rebind it to TFS.
This is quite important for my development to continue without a major problem occurring.

If you just want the files (i.e. not the history), copy them to a workspace and add them using 'tf add' or Source Control Explorer. You'll want to remove the existing SCC bindings and bind it to TFS using the Change Source Control dialog (File -> SCC -> Change SCC). Another way would be to unbind it first, leave it where it is, then run the Add To SCC wizard -- it will create a new mapping from the solution's current location on disk to the server path you choose.

Do I connect to a TFS first? Is there a guide? I do not want to get a step wrong and have a problem.
I'm dissapointed there is no Sourcegear Vault to TFS utility.

I'm not aware of any guides on migrating from Vault.
We support rename/move and undelete. Almost anything you do can be fixed later if something goes wrong (which is the whole point of version control.)
