Source Safe 6.0 and Visual Studio .net: problem with integrated source control bindings.

Source Safe 6.0 and Visual Studio .net: problem with integrated source control bindings.

Post by redparanoi » Fri, 03 Oct 2003 21:06:01


Hello,

I've been using the source code control tool that is integrated to
Visual Studio .net 2003; as it appeared to be corrupting the database,
I decided to disable the integrated tool and simply check the files in
and out using Visual Source Safe (version 6). I removed the
SourceCodeControlProvider key in Software\Microsoft\SourceSafe and
sure enough, source control is not enabled in Visual any more -- I can
add projects, check in and check out files from Source Safe, and use
them in Visual Studio .Net...

However, the old solutions that used to use the integrated source
control tool raise the following error when I try to open them in
Visual Studio .Net:

(first dialog box appears:)
'The solution appears to be under source control, but its binding
information cannot be found. It is possible that the MSSCCPRJ.SCC file
or another item that holds the source control settings for the
solution, has been deleted. Because it is not possible to recover this
missing information automatically, the projects whose bindings are
missing will be treated as not under source control.'

(second dialog box appears:)
'Some of the properties associated with the solution could not be
read.'

Does anyone know of a fix for this without my having to re-enter the
key in the registry? If not, once the integrated source control is
back up, will I have the option to remove the bindings?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe if you re-enabled source control and then used the option to unbind
projects from source control the artifacts causing the problem would be
gone?

You should temporarily re-enable source control on your system and unbind
the projects from source control correctly. Manually editing the files to
remove SCC information is often problematic.
