We have VSS 6.0 in our systems I want to know how exactly to enable the branching,mergign and sharing of files in VSS. I have never done this.Currently Under the source safe menu Only Share is enabled while Branch and Merge Branches Menu items are disabled.

Re: Visual Studio Source Control and SourceSafe How to enable sharing, branching and merging in VSS

In VSS, sharing & branching works kind of "backwards" from other programs you may have used. You start in the desired target location, click Share, then select the source item you want to share to that location. In the UI, branching is treated as sort of a special case of sharing -- you can optionally branch an item during the Share operation, or use the Branch command on an item that's already shared.
