How to: Switch Between TFS and VSS in Old IDEs?

  • Comments 1

If you have an IDE that uses the MSSCCI provider, like VS 2003 or VB6, and you want to switch between TFS and VSS because you have projects on both systems, you will have to change the provider every time you switch. The thing is that setting is stored in the Windows registry, therefore, you will have to restart the IDE to enable the desired provider (just like most programs, unless they implement a registry watcher). There are some tools that can make the switch easier:

Or you may create your own .reg file to write to the registry.
