Why do I not have integrated source control?

Apr 14, 2009 at 9:24 PM
I am used to using TFS and being able to check-in and check-out from within Solution Explorer. Also, editing a file will cause an automatic check-out. This is all very nice.

However I am using VS2008 SP1 with Team Explorer installed and using them to access TFS servers at codeplex.com and I don't have the same experience. All check-outs have to be done manually in Source Control Explorer which I find very annoying.

I can't fathom why I don't have the same experience. Can anyone advise?

Thanks in advance
