Feature of the Day: TFS Source Control Provider

TFS Source Control Provider

Why this feature is cool!

For the last 11 years, Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (VSS) was the only source code control system that integrated seamlessly with Dexterity. However, Microsoft Visual SourceSafe is no longer available. Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) is the new Microsoft standard for managing a source code repository. With the TFS provider for Dexterity, ISVs can use Team Foundation Server to manage their Dexterity projects. They have the same seamless integration with Dexterity, just like they did for VSS. TFS also integrates seamlessly to Visual Studio, so it can be used to manage other projects like those created with Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

  What does it look like? (Control Panel > Dexterity SCCS)

    Hi Pam,

    Has VSS integration been removed from DSCCS 2010 R2?  I ask because we still user VSS here and are not ready to move to TFS as yet, partly due to the expense, and partly because it doesn't support certain useful VSS features like Sharing.

    Can you confirm?

    The VSS provider is still available as well.
