Setting up Team Foundation source control

To take advantage of the benefits of Microsoft Team Foundation source control while working in Microsoft Expression Blend, you must first configure your computer to use it.

Prerequisites

To set up Team Foundation source control

  1. Contact the administrator of your team's Team Foundation server to obtain the correct permissions. For example, if you want only to add or modify files, you must have Contributor permissions. If you want to be able to add new solutions to source control (which you can do only by using Team Explorer), you must have Project Administrator permissions. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions Ee341372.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png on MSDN.

    The Team Foundation server is where your team's source files are stored and protected. To use the source control features in Expression Blend, you must have check-out permissions on the Team Foundation server.

  2. Use Team Explorer or Team System to connect to your team's Team Foundation server. For more information, see How to: Connect to Team Foundation Server Ee341372.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png on MSDN.

  3. Create a Team Foundation workspace on your computer. For more information, see How to: Create a Mapped Workspace Ee341372.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png on MSDN.

    The workspace is a local folder that will contain working copies of the files from the Team Foundation server that are under source control. When you check a file in, your local copy is copied to the Team Foundation server.

  4. Download the files from your team's Team Foundation server to your local workspace folder. For more information, see How to: Get the Source for Your Team Project Ee341372.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png on MSDN.

    After using Team Explorer or Team System to get the initial set of files, you can open bound solutions and use the source control features of Expression Blend to get the latest versions of files. (If a solution is bound, it contains Team Foundation information and can use source control functionality from inside Microsoft Visual Studio and Expression Blend.)

    For more information, see Get the latest copies of project files.
