Complete and Simple to Use Enterprise-Grade Version Control Software

Dynamsoft’s SourceAnywhere version control software (AKA source control software) is specifically designed as a more powerful Visual SourceSafe (VSS) replacement. It uses a centralized approach and Microsoft SQL Server as the backend. SourceAnywhere also satisfies the collaboration and security needs of local and distributed development teams. Capable of handling more than 500 concurrent connections, it is the most effective solution for all source code management scenarios.

Our Customers

"Source Anywhere standalone is actually the best source control we have tried with Visual Studio 2008. It is easier to manage than Team System, more powerful than all the free based application we have tried, and has very good integration with all versions of Visual Studio (6 to 2008). "

Why SourceAnywhere

Full IDE Integration with Visual Studio and More Integration

SourceAnywhere fully supports integration with Visual Studio 2013/2012/2010/2008/2005/2003/6.0. It also integrates with Eclipse, Dreamweaver (Windows), MS Access and other MSSCCI compatible IDEs.

SourceAnywhere's Speedy Performance

For enhanced speed in use, SourceAnywhere employs a unique caching mechanism. This involves a standalone cache server, support for server-side caching, and numerous 'under the hood' tweaks to significantly improve client/server communication speeds. A Delta Transfer can be used to only transfer files that have been modified. In addition, secure compression is used to speed up data transfer and improve storage economy.

Uncompromised Security

SourceAnywhere uses SQL Server, SQL Server Express or LocalDB as the backend database to protect data integrity. It also has built-in SSL and Blowfish encryption, password protection, and automatic encryption of source code and cache files.

The Best VSS Replacement

For users familiar and comfortable with VSS, our SourceAnywhere application practically provides all the features of VSS. The user interface will be a welcome one for prior VSS users and helps eliminate learning curves when transitioning to SourceAnywhere. Yet, for power users, SourceAnywhere also incorporates many modern optimizations, new features and more robust capabilities.


A VSS import tool is provided to import existing VSS data and histories.
