Visual Source Safe Upgrade Tool for Team Foundation Server




I’m finally happy to announce we have just released the Visual Source Safe Upgrade Tool for Team Foundation Server today!


This tool will make it easier to convert from Source Safe to Team Foundation Server.  I have a lot of customers who want to get off Source Safe and start leveraging more than just source control.  If you use Source Safe today, you need this tool! Here is the main text from the site:


The VSS Upgrade tool provides a Wizard Based UI for upgrading Visual Source Safe repositories to Team Foundation Server 2012, 2010 or Team Foundation Service (

You and your team can enjoy many benefits by upgrading your code projects, files, version history, labels, and user information from Visual SourceSafe to Team Foundation Server (TFS) version control. TFS version control is a modern version control system that is fully integrated with the suite of ALM tools in Visual Studio 2012 and Team Foundation Server.

    Mak 🙂

    The requirements should be in the docs per Ed Holloway in the review comments for this tool.  With that said, I think the vision was you would run the tool from your TFS server (but it's not required that you do so).  The OS requirements are: Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Server 2012.  If you run it from your TFS server (or simliar) you should be set in terms of requirements.
