Configure TFS to not exclude files when checking in

Post by kmck » Tue Apr 29, 2014 9:45 pm

Hello,

I am using Ranorex 4.1.5 with TFS in Visual Studio 2010.

I know when adding Ranorex projects in TFS I can specify which files to include/exclude, but say I check out an item from TFS and want to add a .dll, an excel file, or some other file that is automatically excluded from being checked in, how do I ensure Ranorex checks in that item as well?

In my case I have a custom .dll as part of my suite that I had made changes to and added the new reference to my project. I saved my project, checked it in, and when I checked it out today the old .dll (that I had manually uploaded into TFS) was the one still being referenced.

We're fairly new to TFS and learning all its ins and outs, so we greatly appreciate any help we can get :D

Hi,

I found two posts about how to add references to TFS, in my point of view it is quite well described what needs to be done to add them, here are the links: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3971 ... enced-dlls and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1823 ... ces-issues.

Please let me know if these links proves helpful for you :).

Regards,
Markus
