TFS:All files are up to date.

2007-06-07

    If you do a

    tf.exe get filename.ext

    and get All files are up to date. back, it might be because your current directory is not correctly mapped to a folder in the Team Foundation Server project your root folder is mapped to.

    It your server ‘tree’ looks like this:

    ProjectName Source ClientCode ... ServerCode ... …and your local folders look like this: ProjectName Source ClientCode ... ServerCode ... TemporarySource ClientCode ... ServerCode ...

    …then you will get All files are up to date. if you try to get files in the TemporarySource-tree.

    This really bit me because I thought the return message meant that I had the current version of the file on disk, so when I tried a tf.exe checkout filename.ext and got TemporarySource\filename.exe could not be found in your workspace. I did a lot of swearing before I figured out I was in the wrong folder.
