Automatically download latest additions when Get Latest Version is clicked RRS feed

  • Question


    Is it possible to set up TFS to automatically download any additions (folders and files) for a project when Get Latest Version is clicked throught he Visual Studio IDE?

     The only way I know to do this at the moment is to open Source Explorer and click on the folder or file addition (marked as Not Yet Downloaded) and click Get Latest Version from there.


    It would be nice to have these come down automatically on each Get Latest Version call.

  • If I understand you correctly, you are talking about indirect dependencies. One possibility is to add dependent (yet not required for build) files into solution items; then as you get the solution you will get all items as well. You can also organize the items with folders in solution, so I think that's pretty neat.


    Hope that helps,
