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:

1. 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

2. 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.
