Visual SourceSafe Sharing in Team Foundation Server Version Control

Buck Hodges

Lots of folks have asked for sharing in TFS version control.  While we don’t support it and don’t encourage it as a best practice, Rob Caron mentioned that Component Software has produced an application called TFSLinks that adds sharing functionality to TFS.  For those of you who can’t live without VSS-style sharing, you might want to give it a try.

The TFSLinks product maintains the relations between shared files and automatically updates all instances whenever a new revision is checked-in to any copy of the shared file.

Shared files may be imported from your original VSS projects, or defined manually.
