VS2010: Test upgrade a solution

HowTo test a Visual Studio Solution upgrade to VS2010 RC

  • Make a copy of the whole solution
  • Open the solution in existing version like VS2008
  • Tools – Options – Source Control: Change from TFS to None.
  • Right-Click the solution folder – Remove the ReadOnly attribute – subdirectories included
  • Optional: Use tool like Agent Ransack to find all TFS files (.vssscc and .vspscc) from the solution folder – subdirectories included. Delete them
  • Disconnect you network connection to avoid accidentially changing in TFS
  • Open the solution in VS2010 RC
    => The Conversion wizard starts.
  • Press Next
    Upgrade to Framework 4.0?
  • Press No, when asked to upgrade to Framework 4.0
  • You’re done. Play around.
