TFS Command Line Get Command


Can you pls help me how to pull the latest version or label from the TFS through Command Line. I went through the msdn documentation. I am not able to get a clear picture.

I am expecting some command with example where I can pass the server name, Credentials and sourcepath and Destination path.

Basically I want to pull the get latest to a local path which  will be specified in the command line utility. Hope so I am clear.

 You can use tf command line utility

This utility can be found in C:/ProgramFiles/Microsoft Visual Studio (9 or 8 )/Common7/IDE/tf.exe

To do get latest you can use

tf get itemspec [/version:versionspec] [/all] [/overwrite] [/force] [/preview] [/recursive] [/noprompt]

tf get is command

itemspec is used to get latest the specific item

/all switch is used to get all the items

/overwrite switch is used to overwrite all existing local files

/force /recursive and /noprompt are some other usefule switches which can be of your interest.

Prior to this you must have your project to be mapped with the TFS at least once.

if you are using /noprompt then it will not ask for any confimations so it will skip you asking user name and password to login to the TFS account.So use /noprompt carefully.

Hope this helps

Building .Net solutions via the command line (w/out Visual Studio installed)
Hi,I'm pretty new to .Net development, so you may have to bear with me a bit on this one.  I was recently hired in a small office and I helped set up a system to facilitate team development using subversion and Visual Studio .Net 2003.  I'm going to give a little motivation for why I want to know this first, but if you'd rather skip directly to the question that's fine by me.----- It didn't take us long to discover what a pain in the ass it is to synchronize our .dll's after a project is built.  Obviously, we still need to keep the dll's available to the projects and have...

Visual Studio.Net Command Prompt?
Can i use 'Visual Studio.Net Command Prompt' to compile .bat file without install in my server, but i have install Framework version 1.1? If you're having the csc.exe and vbc.exe compilers (.NET Framework SDK download) on your system, you can always compile the code to a dll. You don't need VS.NET for this, since the compilers are freely available in the SDK. Note: of course you can just compile the whole thing locally on your pc with VS.NET and then distribute the compiled code to the server (the CLR addresses the problem of incompatibilities between development and production m...

Parrot runs from command line; not Visual Studio
Hi: I'm working on a application -- actually a web browser written with wxWidgets -- and I'd like to embed a parrot and/or perl6 interpreter. I succeeded in writing an experimental command-line program to read and execute a simple .pir file, compiled with perl6.exe, but that program crashes whenever I run it from Microsoft Visual Studio; it only works when run from the command line. That seems to be the reverse of a more common problem where applications will run ok in debug mode but not run from a prompt. I'm guessing there might be a problem with #defines or something...

Open Website in Visual Studio through Command Line?
Does anyone know if it's possible to open a file system-based website in VS2005 through the command-line? The devenv.exe command-line switches allow you to pass in a project or solution file, but I want to just pass in a directory path and have that open. I noticed that the command-line switches let you specify a command as well, and that VS2005 has a File.OpenWebSite command, but that command just displays the Open Website dialog box - it seemingly does not not allow you to pass in a directory path.Any ideas or suggestions?My end goal is to be able to, through Windows Explorer, right-click ...

Visual Studio .NET IDE Command Window problem
I used the Command Window a lot. While debugging I could find the value of a textbox, string, etc. by just typing something like: ?variablename.text ?variablenamestring It would return the value of whatever I asked for. The other day I opened up the Command Window and it has, ">" inside it. I figured I miskeyed that inside there so I tried to delete it. It cannot be deleted. I tried typing what I normally type (using the example before) after the ">". >?variablename.text All I get is: Command "?variablename.text" ...
