[TFS2010] HowTo: Use the MSSCCI provider with Visual Basic 6



before you start a well deserved holiday we are going to finish the posts that I have in draft mode for some time. First touch review step by step to work with the MSSCCI for Team Foundation Server 2010 provider from Visual Basic 6.

The most important to keep in mind is the order of installation of the products, always bearing in mind that service packs of the same are welcome.

1. Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition

2. Visual source Safeinstalled in this case the version 2005 > Visual source Safe 2005.

At this point, if we create a new project in Visual Basic 6, you will see that we have the option to connect it to Visual source Safe from the Tools menu


Also have a classic of VB6 checkin window + VSS


3 Team Explorer 2010 or Visual Studio 2010. One of the versions of the IDE that allows us to connect to Team Foundation Server 2010.

4. Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider 2010.

At this point we see that the default VB6 + VSS has changed and we can already work with Team Foundation Server.


And at the time of protect our changes, we’ll see the Team Foundation Server CheckIn form.



So far most simple detail, but the important thing is to take into account the order of installation, since without having installed Visual source Safe, I have not been able to MSSCCI take me changes. In Visual Studio 2010 is more simple, because entries in the Source Control Providers are in the registry in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0_Config\SourceControlProviders]]


but with Visual Basic 6, I have not had much luck Open-mouthed smile
