VS08 and TFS08: Source control available in Source Control Explorer but not in Solution Explorer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I have a fresh Installation of VS08 TeamSystem (Developer Edition \ SP1). I can connect to my company's TFS with the the Team Explorer or Source Control Explorer, but when I open a project under source control VS08 won't give me the corresponding features in the context menu of the Soultion Explorer (e.g. there are no options like "Check out", "Check in pending changes", "Undo pending changes"...)
    When I make changes in one of the files and want to save, VS08 just tells me that the file is write protected. Of course I could work by checking in and out with the Source Control Explorer but I think thats not a long term solution.

    Update: I just noticed the following message in the output window when I open the project:

    This solution is offline.
    The solution was offline during its previous session and will remain offline.

    Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong?
