Hi Experts,

I am currently use Visual Source Safe to store source code of my Visual Studio C++ 6.0 project.  I am thinking of replacing VSS with TFS.  Is this possible?  Can TFS store my C++ 6.0 source code without converting it to DOT.NET?  Please advise of resources describing how to go about doing it?

Thanks.

If you are thinking about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_Foundation_Server - yes sure, revision control systems store the *source* that you feed them, they do not require any certain language or additional framework. There's absolutly no need to convert your source code. Yet it for sure would integrate better with a more up-to-date version of Visual Studio, but that's a different story.

BTW, if you are basically looking for a new RCS, I'd like to point you to Subversion (http://subversion.tigris.org/), with TortoiseSVN (http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/) integrating seamlessy with Windows Explorer. And - it's free.

Thanks jkr,
I have found that Visual Studio 6.0 can take advantage of TFS for source control by using MSSCCI and VS6SP6.
