【TFS2013】How to migrate the old project's code informations into a new project? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded TFS2013 from TFS2012 and noticed that there are couples of old projects' process  template and sharepoint portal cann't  be upgraded into tfs2013's ,because these projects maybe use TFS2008 or TFS2010's process template,and I don't know what's the name of these old projects' process template,just like following pics.

       When I look into these projects in the TFS2012 environment,there are the sanme problems,I don't know how to fix them,and get a idea that I can migrate the normal parts of the projects into new tfs2013 projects environment.

       So How can I to migate the old projects' code information into a new TFS2013 project  in a TFS2013 environment?
