I have a team project named "ABC web" without a corresponding source control folder. If I double-click on the source control element in Team Explorer it says:

No Source Control Folder

Cannot open $/ABC web. Source control has not been configured for this team project, you do not have permission to access it, or the team project has been moved or deleted.

If i try to add a file to "$/ABC web/test.txt" using tf.exe it says:

TF10175: The team project folder $/ABC web does not exist. Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator and ask that it be created.

How can I create the team project folder?

In TFS2008, New Team Project Creation wizard contained an option called do not create a source control folder at this time which creates Team Project without configuring corresponding source control folder.TFS2010 doesn't contain this option anymore.

I think in TFS2008, this project may have been created with above configuration.

That is the most likely cause, but is there a way to fix it, i.e., create a source control folder for it? – Pent Ploompuu Aug 23 '10 at 19:33
I think its not possible to configure the Source Control to your existing to Team Project. The other option is to create a New Team Project with Source Control configuration and move your existing artifacts to new Team Project using TFS Integration Platform( – Jehan33 Aug 24 '10 at 16:46

To which TFS usergroup do you belong?

Your account may not have the Read Permissions for Source Control folders.

I'm in the Team Foundation Administrators group so it shouldn't be a security issue. TFSSecurity shows that I have read permissions on the $/ folder, so it's quite certain that this project has no source control folder. – Pent Ploompuu Aug 21 '10 at 23:53
Are you using TFS2008 or TFS2010? If you are using TFS2010, Is it a fresh Install or upgrade from TFS2008? – Jehan33 Aug 22 '10 at 17:50
It's an upgrade from TFS2008. – Pent Ploompuu Aug 23 '10 at 8:29
