Hi, I'm using VS2012. I'm logged into VS online and can open the Team Explorer in VS2012. The frustrating thing is how do I add a new solution to source control? I click on the Solution Explorer, Right click on the solution, Select "Add solution to Source Control". The a pop up dialog shows up with 3 of my Solution/projects that are there.
The problem is i don't want to put this new solution under any of the 3 solutions currently in Source Control in VS Online. I want this to be a new solution/project to be saved in the source control form the root. If I click on the Advanced button, edit the "Source Control Folder" path to "$/MyNewSolutionName", I then get an error message saying root folder is reserved only for team project. How can I get a new solution/project to the source control? I've done it before but it seemed to have changed.
Okay, In Source Control Explorer, I select the root, xxxx.visualstudio.com\DefaultCollection. I then select VS "File" menu and in the drop down I selected "New" and then "Team Project". It takes me to a browser and lands at VS online. I then type in the new team project name. Everything is good so far. I now returns to my VS on my local PC, I right click either the solution or the project in that solution, select "Add solution to Source Control". The "Add Solution... " dialog then pops up. I selected newly created Team Project, leave everything else in default and select OK and now I get a different error message saying "Fail to create mapping, cannot map server path, $/TeamProject/projectname, becuase it is not rooted beneath a team project.
How can I fix this and just get my source into the source control? Thank you.
