Adding Visual InterDev Projects (Solutions) to Visual SourceSafe

Adding Visual InterDev Projects (Solutions) to Visual SourceSafe

Adding Visual InterDev Projects (Solutions) to Visual SourceSafe

I am trying to add some Visual InterDev projects / solutions to Visual SourceSafe.

Here's the situation:

Every web-developer has a copy of the project on their local hard drives, but the "real" code is on a web-server.

So, when I (Visual SourceSafe administrator; not web-savy)
try to add their projects / solutions to Visual SourceSafe, we get an error that mentions that the webserver does not have Visual SourceSafe installed on it or the user does not have a valid login id.

I know the user has a valid login user id, because he can bring up Visual SourceSafe.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi there

I'm looking for the same answer you are, so if you don't mind I'll just listen in. Although I did read in some messages posted back earlier, that they had to play around with the security settings to get it working properly


RE: Adding Visual InterDev Projects (Solutions) to Visual SourceSafe

We have been experiencing the same exact issue. I have found no solution on the Microsoft KB ( I thin i've read every articel there is regarding VSS/VI integration). Were either of you ever able to get this resolved?

"Cannot establish source control for the Web Application. The server does not have a source control system installed or the user is not recognized" keeps coming up -- yet we DO have it installed and the user IS there.

Thanks for any insight!

RE: Adding Visual InterDev Projects (Solutions) to Visual SourceSafe

I had to go to the VSS directory on the machine and open up the permissions to get around that error message.  Since I was irritated I just added Everyone/Full Control, but I know you could use more restrictive permissions and still get it to work.
