Support for Visual Source Safe Extended


Support for Visual Source safe 2005 was previously scheduled to end this year, however to allow customers more time to migrate away from it. Apparently MS has decided to extend mainstream support until July 10 2012 and Extended Support to July 11 2017.

How do I know this? There is a web site that tells you how long MS products are supported for.

So come on people lets get those VSS repositories converted over to TFS you will be much happier and your code will be much safer.

In case your reading this and don’t know that it’s available you have a tool right there on your machine to convert a VSS repository to TFS.
