Getting started with a bound project - Method 1
The first method will always work. The principle is to use the GUI client to arrange your working folders, get the files to disk, and then open the solution like you would any other file on your hard drive.
After you've installed the Client on your development machine, open it, and log into your server.
Below is solution that I've added to the server, and bound to the Enhanced client, but haven't opened yet.
Set a working folder for the top folder.
If some of my projects need to have working folders that aren't under the solution, this is the point where you would set those.
Now do a get latest. Now open the solution from Windows Explorer. You'll be prompted to log in, and now you can check out and check in changes to this solution right from Visual Studio. Getting started with a bound project - Method 2
The second method will work most of the time.
Open Visual Studio, and make sure that our enhanced client is the default Source Control provider. From the Tools menu, select Options. In the options dialog select Source Control, and pick the Enhanced Client from the plug-in list. Now, in the File menu's Source Control option, then Open From. You'll be prompted to log in, and choose a repository. In the Open From dialog, browse to the location of your solution file. You may be prompted to set a working folder. Now your project is open. If you don't see the Pending Change View, select the View Menu, then Vault or Fortress, then the Pending Changes option.
