INTERNET APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
MID MARKET ERP DEVELOPMENT
By Jacky Xu
Recently we discussed source code version control for ERP projects. Most ERP projects are based on VB6, while other projects use .Net IDE. We wanted to use the same tool to manage the source code. I did some research on Github, but it would not work for us. Yesterday, Joe Zhou sent me a link about how VB6 works with .Net TFS and I did some research. Below are some steps on how to integrate VB6 IDE with TFS:
1. Install visual studio 2012 with TFS(VS 2012 requires OS is windows 7, 2008 r2 or later.)
2. Connect to TFS server with Microsoft live ID and map root to local driver.
3. Install a tool named "Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 MSSCCI Provider"
4. Config VB6 IDE to connect to TFS through the tool. (The tool also requires VB6 SP6 to be installed) Below are some screen shots about configuration:
Find a file named vbaddin.ini and add one line VBSCC=3, in the file locate windows folder.
Run VB6, you can find one additional menu.
If you open a project from the TFS server, you can add file to TFS, check-in and check-out the files.
