Get the Latest Source Before Making Changes

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

To make sure that you have the latest versions of all the source files for the project you are working on, run a get latest command before you check out a file for editing. The danger of not doing so is that locally building your code against non-current source files increases the likelihood of your code causing build problems when you subsequently check it into the server.

To get the latest copies of the file set associated with a specific team project, right-click the team project in Source Control Explorer and then click Get Latest Version. If you currently have writable files with pending edits in your workspace, this command does not overwrite those files. You can run the same command from the command line by running the Tf get /all command from a directory mapped to the current workspace.
