I've been testing this against TFS 2013 update 4 and it seems to work well. I ran into very few issues merging together a dozen VSS databases into a single team project. I was able to mix elements into different folder structures to bring together code bases that were spread across several VSS databases, as well as push older code into a structure set aside for archival purposes. It took a fair bit of detailed planning, but in the end was extremely worth it.
I have a very bad experience with this tool. The tool is stuck after processing some files. To retry the tool needs to be reinstalled EVERY TIME.
Is there a way to prevent duplication directory names when migrating with the tool from VSS to NFS 2013. For example on the VSS side $\ProjectDemo but when I migrate that over to TFS 2013 it carries over the project name from VSS under the new project name in TFS 2013 which looks like this after the migration is complete: ServerName\Defa
Have to say I was very pleasantly surprised that this tool worked so smoothly. Upgraded from Visual SourceSafe to Visual Studio Online. All different types of projects, C#, VB.Net, VB6, database, all handled without issue.
The import went smoothly except for a few issues with paths being too long. We also appear to have lost some history in the import, we only have history for the current year.
Hello. Trying to install the latest version on 2012 server to upgrade my VSS to tfs. I am getting compatibility mode error.Is it possible to provide a timeline for a fix?
having the same issue
We upgraded from SS 8.0 into TFS 2012 with the databases hosted on Sql 2012 SP1 cumulative update 7. We found when converting projects with history, we always got the error "Migration failed due to "TF60086: Unable to read or write to the intermediate database on Microsoft SQL Server <Instance Name>. A trigger returned a resultset and/or was running with SET NOCOUNT OFF while another outstanding result set was active." When we pointed the VSS upgrade tool to a 2008R2 instance for the temporary database it creates, we loaded the full history into our TFS repository in SQL 2012 without error.
At the first glance, every looked OK, but then we discovered that only this year history was migrated to TFS 2013.
I'm having problems installing this on my Windows 8.1 OS. I keep getting the error message "Another setup is already running. Please wait for it to finish before trying again.". I've already checked the compatibility settings on the tfs_VssUpgrade.
Nice. Wish I had this 5 years ago - needed to do exactly this type of thing. Thanks.
2 words: works good
It works with TFS 2013 but only if you are using the TFS version and not GIT.
It helps me to upgrade my old visual source vb6 projects to tfs
I had no problem at all migrating our TFS databases with this tool. This is a dramatic improvement over earlier releases.
