We are in the process of evaluating TFS that is part of visual studio 2010 and will be adopting that as our source control. When I attempt to use your SQL Source Control it is reporting that I need to install the TFS Client on my machine. Since I have the VS 2010 RC installed already the TFS client is already there it is just not a separate install anymore. Please refer to this post about it.

Will you be supporting the new TFS in VS 2010?

We are currently supporting TFS 2008. (There is minimal support for TFS 2005, but this hasn't been tested completely since most users seem to be on 2008.) So, SQL Source Control is looking for either the Team Explorer 2005 or 2008 Client.

We haven't tested against Visual Studio 2010 yet since that is still in beta, but we do plan to support that. Our internal issue reference number is SOC-804.

Thanks for providing us with the link to the blog!

Great, but a correction is in need here.Very Happy VS2010 is no longer in Beta it is in RC now and is scheduled for release Mid April. Sooooo, it would be really nice if you could start the work earlier??Razz I have been using the RC since it was released and it is awesome.

Oops! You're right. I meant RC. I updated our internal issue to reflect this. Smile Thank you!

I thought I would post the steps required to connect using TFS 2010 RC. This was worked out with the help of Stephanie Herr (Thanks)

Required: Install the Team Systems Explorer for 2008.

Optional: Create a new team project collection in the TFS 2010 admin panel on your TFS 2010 server.

Using Visual Studio 2010, create a new Team Project in the Team Project Collection of your choice.

IMPORTANT
In visual Studio - Select the Team Project and link it to a local path. This will enable the creation of an empty folder which is required at this time.

Create an empty folder in the Team Project. This si the folder you will choose when linking inside of SQL Server Management Console.

Open SSMC, select the database and click on the Create New Link to Source Control in the SQL Source Control Tab.

For the server URL you should specify it like this.
http://server name/tfs/Team Project Collection Name

Then you can click on browse and select the empty folder you created in Visual Studio. DO NOT select the Team Project root name, it has to be the empty directory your created.


This is what worked for me, your results may vary. now that I can use it I can start requesting all the cool features I desire....Smile
