Today I decided to blow away my tfs repo on my machine and do a fresh pull. To do this I opened of up VS 2012 RC and did a get latest. Of course it did not actually give me latest because as far as the server knew I had it, even though a simple check on disk would have told the system I DID NOT. When I did this I was presented w/ the following dialog
Ok, the dreaded ‘if you really want the latest you must jump through hoops option’, I do this all the time.
So, I ventured out to do a ‘force’ and was stumped by the image below:
Can anyone find the ‘Get Specific Version’ option? No, either can I… ugg. To make sure I was not forgetting something I opened up VS2010 to see where that option is as seen blew.
So, it is clear that in VS2010 the option was front and center so lets get back VS 2012. Turns out in VS2012 it is there, but it has been smartly placed under the ‘advanced’ section. Which makes perfect sense because we ALL know we never use this option… like not 1-2x per day or anything
Hey developers, if you are going to move an option, make sure that you do 2 things:
- Move it ONLY if it makes sense to move it
- Make sure you update any message box’s which refer to the option and update them correctly
Till next time,
