Using Visual SourceSafe - Integrating VSS with Visual C++ 6.0
This article is a part of SourceSafe / VSS Tutorial
SourceSafe can be integrated into Visual C++ 6.0 to source control VC projects and files.
To integrate SourceSafe with VC 6.0, we can do as follows:
Choose SourceSafe as the current source control provider. For information on how to do it, refer to: https://www.dynamsoft.com/codepool/microsoft-source-code-control-interface-msscci-registry-entries.html
Add the VC project into source control of SourceSafe by clicking menu Project -> Source Control -> Add to Source Control. We can also add the project by right-clicking the file in the Project Explorer.
(Add VC project to SourceSafe from menu)
(Add VC project to SourceSafe)
- In the following Log On to SourceSafe Database dialog box, enter the credentials to log on a VSS DB.
(Log on to VSS Database)
- Choose a location in the VSS project tree to store the VC project.
(Choose location to place the VC project)
- Select the files we want to add into SourceSafe for source control and click OK.
(Add VC files to SourceSafe)
- Now, all of the files are under source control of SourceSafe. We can find the SourceSafe functions through menu Project -> Source Control. We can also access some of the functions by right-clicking the file in the Project Explorer.
