  • Download the source code ZIP file for the release(s) of PFC you want to work with and unzip it onto your hard drive.
  • Install some version of Team Explorer, the client layer for the Team Foundation System server.
  • Install some version of the Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider, which allows Microsoft Source Code Control Interface (MSSCCI) based tools (such as PowerBuilder) to talk to the Team Explorer client.
  • Recommended, but not required, install a copy of Teamprise Explorer you can use as a GUI to browse the source code in the server.
  • Open the workspace and indicate you want to use the "Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider" as the source control system.
  • Use the information below to connect to the server.
Project Name: pfc
Username: snd\<website username>_cp
Password: <same as your website password>
Server Name:
Port number: 443
Protocol: https
  • You then should be able to do check-ins and check-outs against the code.

Hi Bruce, I can not get connected anymore since I'm using windows 8.1 with the described parameters.
I have tried to run PB 12.5.2 build 5006 with compatibility settings (Win7 & win Xp SP3) but I always get the error 'can not reach the server".
I have used TFS 2010 & 2013 with the corresponding MSSCCI providers and the error subsists !
Has the parameters changed ?
Thanks in advance,

What are you using for the URL?

With Team Explorer 2012, I get prompted for just a URL. I used what was shown in this dialog from CodePlex.


That is:

Works fine, although I primarily use SVN myself.

You may have a firewall issue. See if you can interact with source control just using Team Explorer. You might check out the Team Foundation Power Tools for things like a command line interface.
