Fixing “…not currently configured for integrated source control in Visual Studio” in VS2008

BronwenWeeGo.jpgHad one of those “moments” this morning where I opened up myVS2008 tfs project only to get the following message:

The solution you have opened is under source control but not currently configured for integrated source control in Visual Studio. Would you like to bind this solution to source control now?

I hit OK..try hitting the Bind button..nothing! So first thing’s first…i went and copied all my hard work to somewhere else “just incase”.

Turns out somehow, I manged to mark the server offline..and the message is a bug in VS2008 when you open Source Control Explorer when the server is marked offline.

The FIX: Mark the server ONLINE by taking the solution ONLINE.  There’s a Go Online button in Solution Explorer..either click the Go Online button or right-click in the menu.

So i’m now back online…can you hear the big sigh of relief 🙂
