Dexterity SCCS is supposed to be unnecessary with newer options, Visual Source Safe and Team Foundation Server. However, everything seems to be folded onto Azure DevOps.
I must be missing a step of two somewhere, but my attempts to select Visual Source Safe, or any of the three versions of Team Foundation Server just get me this.
Does anyone have Dexterity Source Control working with Azure DevOps, and able to use these controls?
What steps am I missing?
In order to connect Dexterity Source Code control to TFS or Azure DevOps, you must use the Visual Studio 2012 provider. Is the only one that can be used with versions of Dexterity ranging from 12 (GP 2013) to 18 (GP 2018 and GP modern lifecycle). Also, it's the only stable provider among all the Visual Studio ones - personally, I have only gotten the Visual Studio 2013 provider to work once, and the Visual Studio 2015 provider has had a bug every since it shipped and it's never been fixed.With that said, you will need to have Visual Studio 2012 with Update 5 installed. Older versions of Visual studio can be downloaded from:Older versions of Visual Studio page - https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/older-downloads/Visual Studio 2012 Update 5 package - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3072098/visual-studio-2012-update-5I wrote a full DevOps series for Dexterity and Azure DevOps which you can find here:#DevOps Series: Microsoft Dexterity Source Code Control with Visual Studio Team Serviceshttps://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/07/devops-series-microsoft-dexterity.html#DevOps Series: Upgrading Microsoft Dexterity VSS and TFS repositories to Visual Studio Team Services - Part 1/2https://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/07/devops-series-upgrading-microsoft.html#DevOps Series: Upgrading Microsoft Dexterity VSS and TFS repositories to Visual Studio Team Services - Part 2/2https://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/07/devops-series-upgrading-microsoft_19.html#DevOps Series: Building Dexterity Applications with Visual Studio Team Services Part 1/3https://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/08/devops-series-building-dexterity.html#DevOps Series: Building Dexterity Applications with Visual Studio Team Services Part 2/3https://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/08/devops-series-building-dexterity_16.html#DevOps Series: Building Dexterity Applications with Visual Studio Team Services Part 3/3https://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/09/devops-series-building-dexterity.html#DevOps Series: Building Dexterity Applications with Visual Studio Team Services - Summaryhttps://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2017/09/devops-series-building-dexterity_26.html*The latter link contains links to all previous articlesI actually created a presentation which I delivered in 2017 at the GP Tech Conference based on this material and some of the tips have been incorporated in the 5-session series "25 Dexterity Tips and Tricks" delivered by @David Musgrave and I over the years
