.Net 1.1, Visual Studio 2003, and TFS 2010

So, you have some old .Net 1.1 apps that you don’t want to upgrade, BUT you want to use TFS 2010 for your source control.  Well you are in for a treat! (kidding)

First, you’re condemned to using VS 2003, because VS 2005, 2008, and 2010 only deal with .Net 2.0 and higher.

Second, because of this, you’re condemned to using the TFS 2010 MSSCCI provider; which is a not very well documented, unsupported by MS free tool. 🙂 (Have fun)

This guy has a great post with screenshots to lead you through the gauntlet!

Third, heaven help you if you’re migrating your source from another source control provider like SourceSafe or PVCS.  You’ll need to unbind the code from the old source ccontrol provider and then re-bind it to TFS 2010.  A treachous course that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

But otherwise, have fun!
