View Full Version : VSS to TFS source control

09-28-2012, 02:58 PM
I had InstallShield v12 loaded previous to the recent upgrade to 2012.
Now i have also decided with this version of Install Shield to switch source control to TFS server.

My issue right now, installshield seems to be 'locked' into using VSS. There is no option to choose a different SC.
Project -> Source Control -> Launch SourceSafe
launches VSS

Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Advanced -> Integration
just lists the Visual Source Control as the Source control in use, with no options to change this.

Yes, the machine that had IS v12, and now v2012, does have TFS build agent on the machine. Daily builds are already happening on this machine.

You probably need to install this: (or a different version depending on your TFS version )

tx.. that seemed to work... now IS sees the TFS .. but kicked out VSS... luckily i don't want to continue with VSS anyway.

FWIW, I don't use this functionality. TFS Power Tools gives me Windows Explorer integration where I can do my check out and check in from and I don't bother to let InstallShield know that it's using source control.
