    Thanks for sharing this feature but in my installation, only ‘Visual Studio Team Foundation Server’ can be selected from the Current source control plug-in.

    How do I install the required plug-in ?

    I found there are some files related to VSS in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\VS SCC

    Thanks in advance.
