Migrating PB11.2 application to PB12.5 and TFS 2010

Migrating PB11.2 application to PB12.5 and TFS 2010

Migrating PB11.2 application to PB12.5 and TFS 2010

Currently we have multiple applications in PB11.2 and our source control is TFS2010, but we are in the process of migrating those applications to PB12.5.

Our applications are set up in TFS as follows:

Dev-->Source(Development branch created from main branch containing all PB files, pbw,pbx,pbt,*sr, and pbls.)
Main-->Source(Main files)

Working folder is on the local machine, C:\TFS Applications\....

What I would like to do is migrate the Dev branch to PB12.5 and then merge the files to the main branch as we will now have both branches as PB12.5.

I have no problems opening up the dev work space and migrating the files to PB12.5, but the local files are PB12.5 and the server files are still 11.2. What would be the best way to make the dev files in TFS PB12.5? Ideally I don't want to check out all my objects locally and add a comment and then check them back in, that would be a huge undertaking and doesn't sound practical. I've tried to check out all the objects in TFS and check them back in, but TFS doesn't recognize the version migration so there are no changes to check in.

Has anyone done this before and is there an easier way?


RE: Migrating PB11.2 application to PB12.5 and TFS 2010

The reason why TFS doesn't recognize the migration is because no code did change during the migration.

PB does keep a flag in the source to store in which PB release the object (window/datawindow/...) was saved. But this flag does not change during migration. It will be changed if you make some changes on the object and save it.

I should not worry that this flag is still on 11.2. Just continue to work.
