.Net Loftings Easy .NET for pre-Beginners

 

What happened: I have an online TFS account (if you don’t have one please go to visual studio and subscribe, free for 5 people team). I recently bought a surface pro and started creating various test projects.

I created a test project on vs 2012 on my surface, then connected to my TFS (free) and then I decided to sync my project to my TFS, I right clicked on my solutions to add it to source control but then I got the following error

“Error Cannot map server path $/project name/path name because it is not rooted beneath a team project” what happened was I have no local path setup for my source control, so I synched my source control to a local folder and then moved my test project to this local path, then I continued the same adding my solution to the source control and it worked.

very simple solution. I know there are so many articles about this but this is my experience and I am sharing it.

Thank you

The solution to this is
1.Go to Team Menu
2.Click on the Manage Connections
3. Under the Team Explorer Pane, Click the Manage Connections Link
4. Click Connect to Team Foundation
5. Under Team Projects select the project that you created at visualstudio.com
6. Click Connect and you are Done
7.Now you can proceed to Add your project to Source Control

Just like that...!
