Attempting TFS Source control... not doing well though.
OK. I have some projects. They have been living on my computer, all nice and happy.
Today, I was asked/told that I would be needing to get them into TFS for version control...
OK, cool... I know that TC does versioning... uh oh... GIT, Subversion, etc... NOT TFS. So I go and look at google.
In among a lot of stuff that involves a total marriage between TFS & TC (NOT yet... baby steps!) I found a really nice tutorial on YouTube that was perfect... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l-32lhkTMk I mean, it was for TFS 2008/TC7.5, but it should not be Toooo different, Right?
So, I downloaded the MSSCCI package for 2013/32 bit and installed it... Then opened the Source Control plugin page, FULLY expecting to see TFS.
I was not rewarded (Stop giggling, I thought it would work)
So, I decided to try "The other way"
Went into Visual Studio, browsed thru the TFS Source until I found the teams data and created a local copy. Added a new folder, made a copy of my current project tree, and commited the entire thing to the great sky-server...
Then opened TC and pointed it to the new local folder.
It worked... saw my Project Suite and all my tests, right where they should be.
getting pestered with a ton of dire warnings that everything is write protected...
Oh yeah, CHECK OUT... (DId that from within Visual Studio again)
Now everything works. Just need to check in/ check out with Visual Studio
Ummm.... So, that's were I am. It is SERIOUSLY non-optimal. HOW do I go about correctly/fully integrating TFS & TC, so I can perform the needed manipulations without having to flip open Visual Studio all the time?
Judging by the the "Supported Source Control Systems" ( http://smartbear.com/viewarticle/73745/ ) help topic, to make TestComplete work with Microsoft Team Foundation Version Control, a 32-bit version of MSSCCI Provider should be installed. You can download this component from the Microsoft Download Center. What provider did you install?
