Hi all


We have this occasional problem whereby checking out a file doesn't get the latest, subsequently resulting in us having to merge our changes due to the file being different on TFS.

Any ideas This sounds like it could be a bug to me
Thanks

It's ok, I've seen why now, it's by design.

Looks like a forked thread.

I'm hoping this is going to be an option in the service pack that is currently in the works - i.e. let me select an option that always gets latest when I check out a file.

No, not in the service pack. It is a feature of the (unsupported) MSSCCI provider, though.

  • Support for Enterprise Architect and PowerBuilder
  • GetLatest on Checkout support
  • Work items can be modified in the checkin window
  • Setup works on x64
  • Check-in lock is treated as exclusive
  • Parameters for external diff are passed in the same order as in Visual Studio 2005
  • Open from SCC and save to SCC operations are enhanced to behave much more like in Visual Studio 2005 and VSS

    So, if we use the MSSCCI Provider with VS 2005, will we still have the full Team Foundation functionality (e.g. work items, builds, etc.) as well as full source code control

    I wouldn't actually recommend using the MSSCCI provider with VS 2005, just pointing out that it has that support.

    If you want it in your normal VS 2005 + TFC, I think the macro that Ed posted should be fine for you:

    (dunno how this got posted to the wrong thread)

    Get Latest on Checkout is unlikely to be in SP1. Here are the
    workarounds I know of:

    - use the MSSCCI provider:

    - add a new Solution Explorer menu item:

    - use a macro:

    - don’t be afraid of merging :-) So long as people don’t edit
    the same part of the file, everything will be handled automatically.
