Opened an existing solution from Visual Studio 10 in the VIsual Studio 11 Beta and attempted to add it to source control.  Got an error that the system encountered 48 errors attempting to perform the add operation on 48 items.  First error encountered was TF10175 that the top level project $MarkentingStoreData did not exist... Of course that wasn't where I want the project I want to put it under an existing team project that doesn't match the solution name.  We are using TFS 2008 and the TFS server is on a separate machine.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for reporting this issue to us. It sounds like this is the problem.
1. You have the root folder ($/) mapped to something on your disk. Call it C:\TFS.
2. You have a solution already in TFS somewhere. Let's say it's at $/TeamProject/MySolution. The corresponding path on your local disk is C:\TFS\TeamProject\MySolution.
3. Now you want to add another solution to source control. So you put this new solution at C:\TFS\NewSolution. You open the .sln file in Visual Studio and go to Add Solution to Source Control.
4. The server rejects your attempt to pend an add on items under this folder, because the top level folder $/NewSolution doesn't exist. Top level folders are reserved for team projects -- the only way to create one is to create a team project with the New Team Project wizard.

The appropriate action to take here would be to instead put your new solution at a location under your existing team project. So for this example, one place might be in C:\TFS\TeamProject\NewSolution. From here, the solution should add to source control just fine.

I hope this makes sense.
