  • Question

  • How can i add an existing project to source control? I have a team project that i can see in team explorer in my VS2005, but i don't see where i can add a new or existing solution to TFS. Is there something else i need to install?

    1. Create or open the solution.
    2. Rightclick in Solution Explorer -> Add Solution To SCC
      1. If the solution is in a mapped folder, the adds will be pended automatically
      2. If not, you will be prompted for a server location to store the solution, and a mapping will be created from that path to the solution's path on disk
    3. Checkin

  • You mean VS solutions? You can right click on project or solution in solution explorer and select "Add solution to Source Control" menu. It'll show a dialog box to choose the team project in which to import the solution.

  • I don't see that option. Is there something i need to install to make this option available? I have the team explore installed and can connect to TFS but still no add to SCC

  • Do any other source control features (eg Source Control Explorer) work?  Make sure you have a valid plugin selected in Tools -> Options -> Source Control.

  • Doesn't seem so? Would this be on the TFS disk or my VS2005 TSE disk?

  • For the record i'm using Workgroup Edition...is this the reason why I may not have this functionallity?

  • Workgroup Edition doesn't matter.

    Are you saying that Team Explorer is installed, but Tools -> Options -> Source Control doesn't have an option to select Team Foundation?  I've never heard of that.  Try reinstalling Team Explorer.
