Using Visual Studio Directory as Source Directory.

Hi There,

I am using sourcetree for my visual studio projects. Is there a way to setup a repository and have the source directory as my visual studio source directory of each of my programs.

At the moment I have to copy my Visual Studio directory to another directory before SourceTree will pick up the changes.

Thanks for your help.

Best Regards,

You need to do one of these two:

  • Open the code from the Git clone in VS
  • If you want the code to be where you are now using it from, overwrite that folder with the git clone (at a point when you have no uncommitted changes)

BTW VS has pretty nice Git integration, do check it out.
