Updated: October 24, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 and earlier versions support Microsoft Visual SourceSafe as a version control mechanism.

Item

Description

Reason for deprecation

Support for Visual SourceSafe for version control is being removed in favor of Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010, because Team Foundation Server provides enhanced functionality.

Replaced by another feature

Support for Visual SourceSafe remains in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 but will be removed in the next version of Microsoft Dynamics AX. We recommend that you now use Team Foundation Server 2010 instead of Visual SourceSafe. For more information, see Migration of Microsoft Dynamics AX Version Control System content from Microsoft Visual SourceSafe to Microsoft Team Foundation Server.
