Visual Studio 2010 & 2012 Sharing/Using Same TFS Workspace

First, if you want to use VS 2010 with Team Foundation Service, you need to install a hot fix.

Note 1: you need to install VS 2010 SP1 first.

Note 2: Regular Windows Update won’t pick this hotfix up.  You need to manually install it.

If you already are using a workspace with VS2012 with TFS and you want to use the same workspace for VS 2010:

  1. Edit your VS2012 workspace and change from Local Workspace to Server Workspace.
  2. In VS 2010, you should now be able to see the workspace used by VS 2012.  Select that workspace to use.
