TFS: using tf to move files

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/09/30

Recently, I had a “server binding” “status=invalid” in TFS when moving quite a bit of files from CVS to TFS.
The most problematic where getting the solution, and a webservice project correctly.

The FAQ on solution binding indicated I should fix my workspace (which is simple: just a root directory), so that was not of much help.

I tried various other things, but in the end, the easiest fix was to:

  1. rename the directories of the bad solution and project,
  2. create an empty solution
  3. create an empty ASP.NET web site project
  4. then move all of the old files to the new directory structure

Moving files around from within Visual Studio is a tedious process: you can only move one file at a time.

TF to the rescue: it allows you to call perform TFS tasks from the commandline.

Time to automate that with a little batch file. Read the rest of this entry »
