Hi all,

I know this may seem very simple, but I have a VS2005 solution that I have added into SourceSafe via the SourceSafe application itself, but when I open that solution in VS2005 it doesn't seem to be bound to SourceSafe as the SourceSafe icons and menu option are not there.

Must I right-click the solution in VS2005 solution explorer and then select 'Add solution to Source Control...' I am just worried that something may screw up with SourceSafe as the solution files I have already put into SourceSafe.

What is the correct way of adding VS projects to SourceSafe Is it by adding files directly into SourceSafe, or is it through VS2005

Thanks in advance.

If you want the SourceSafe commands to be integrated in the VS Solution Explorer, you must have source control bindings in the sln/proj files. The easiest way to do this is the Add Sln To SCC wizard: it adds the files to the VSS database and correctly handles all the bindings. Since you've already added the files to the VSS database, you may be able to open the solution from disk and add bindings manually via File -> Source Control -> Change Source Control. If that doesn't work, delete the files from VSS and run the Add To SCC wizard.

Ok, thanks, Richard.

I deleted the files from vss and then added via VS2005.
