Automatic checkout of installer projects RRS feed

  • General discussion


    When editing an installer project under TFS control, the vdproj file must be checkout out manually before any edits can be made to the installer. This behavior differs from other project edits which automatically check out the project file when you attempt to edit project contents or properties.

    If you right click the installer project in the solution explorer and check it out, you get a dialog containing all project related files and you must uncheck all files except the vdproj file. This is very tedious. The other option is to use the Source Control Explorer but this is awkward if you have multiple installers.

    Hopefully this might get fixed in a future release.

  • I turned in a connect ticket on this and it was closed as "by design".  Pretty crappy design, but there you go.
