When we use Visual Studio 2015 or 2017, we see the Git feature is provided by default. At least, we do not need to install Git separately, Git can be installed with Visual Studio together. When new cross platform supported Visual Studio Code came, we thought it will come with Git together by default. But actually it is NOT. At least, in current newest version 1.19.3.
I realized it was some different when I loaded local project to Visual Studio Online in Visual Studio 2015 compared with using Visual Studio 2013.

Let me start from Visual Studio 2015 CTP version. I have not tried it yet. Because it is still a preview version, so I decide to install it in Windows 10 tech preview system.
Actually I might not want to try this time if I did not read Scott Gu’s blog:
Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 released in Nov 12, 2014. I am going to update my local Visual Studio 2013 today.
We had a post about “Silverlight application compile failed in Visual Studio 2013”, but this time after we did the steps which was introduced, we still got compile failed.
We tried to moved current Silverlight application to another pc which was installed visual studio 2013, we found there were some references gone.
