Change the file masks that are excluded by Source Control

by Ewald Hofman 2. August 2009 22:32

When you add files to Source Control, some of the files are excluded automatically, such as dll files.


You can change the default setting by modifying one of the following registry keys:

Per-User: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<version>\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\AddOptions
Per-Machine: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<version>\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\AddOptions

where <version> is the VS version:
For TFS2008 “9.0”
For TFS2010 "10.0"
If the value is not already there, add a string value titled “ExcludeMasks” and set it to the exclusion list you would like to use.  If this value if found, it overrides the built-in defaults.



Version Control | VSTS 2008 | VSTS 2010
