tfs2008 - Connectiong To TFS 2008 and TFS 2013

Our company is currently using TFS 2008. We installed TFS 2012 on a different windows server and restored all the team projects from the backup (TFS 2008) and then we upgraded to TFS 2013 on that windows server.

tfs2008 - TFS Integration Platform Migration Issue

I am trying to use TFS Integration Platform to migrate my project A on server 1 to project A on server 2. I have branched code from project B on server 1 to project A on server 1 but I am not moving project B to server 2. Is there any way that I can use a default action for all conflicts to resolve by adding instead of branching on server 2 during the migration? If not, is there anything else I can do to get the code over from initial checkin without moving project B to server 2?Thanks in advance!...Read more

I've created a tfsbuild.proj file that builds a release version of my solution and in it I have created a custom target for BuildNumberOverrideTarget that handles custom versioning.

A 3rd party has developed some applications for us and has been using MS Team Foundation Server 2008 for their source control.
