How to change the version of Team Explorer that SQL Source Control uses

You can change the version of Team Explorer that SQL Source Control uses by modifying a config file:

  1. Make sure you've installed a version of Team Explorer that's compatible with your version of TFS.

    You don't need to uninstall any later incompatible versions.

  2. Make sure Management Studio is closed.
  3. Go to the SQL Source Control config files folder: %localappdata%\Red Gate\SQL Source Control 6
  4. Open RedGate_SQLSourceControl_Engine_EngineOptions.xml in a text editor.

  5. Inside the EngineOptions version tags, add:
    <TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>TFSxxxx</TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>
    xxxx 
    is the version of Team Explorer you want SQL Source Control to use.  

    Example

    <EngineOptions version="3" type="EngineOptions">
    	<TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>TFS2010</TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>
    </EngineOptions>
  6. Save the file.

How to connect without using Team Explorer

  2. Go to the SQL Source Control config files folder: %localappdata%\Red Gate\SQL Source Control 6
  3. Open RedGate_SQLSourceControl_Engine_EngineOptions.xml in a text editor.

  4. Inside the EngineOptions version tags, add:
    <TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>TfsExtendedClient</TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>

    Example

    <EngineOptions version="3" type="EngineOptions">
    	<TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>TfsExtendedClient</TeamFoundationServerDllOverride>
    </EngineOptions>
  5. Save the file.
