Adding a web application project to source control (Visual Source Safe)

I have a couple of websites that I develop locally on WinXP Pro and these
have their virtual directories mapped to another local drive (i.e.
E:\Websites\*) rather than the default C:\inetpub\wwwr oot\* location.

Using VS.NET 2003 I wanted to add my solution to source control (local VSS
database as well) but was unable to do it because it complained that the
path did not correspond to c:\inetpub\wwwr oot or something like that. Does
that mean that the only way to keep web projects under source control is if
your virtual directory is under the IIS root directory rather than your own?

Thx,
Emilio

Using the IDE, you are locked in a box. But, you can get around this by
adding the source via SourceSafe, then getting latest to the directory you
specified. Once you do that, you are golden.

The interaction between SourceSafe, IIS and Visual Studio is the issue here.
It is not a new problem, as those securing source with ASP sites experienced
much of the same.

This is driving me to insanity!!! I do not have a lot of experience with IIS which probably is not helping but as far as I can tell I am do things as per the MSDN documentation. I have a solution in Source Safe that I want to add some web service projects to. I create a folder under my solution folder for the new web service project. I create a virtual directory using IIS and accept the default settings for security etc.

I would like to add my binaries from the Release directory of several projects to source safe. My hope is that I can get latest, build the project, and then check-in so that the binaries are updated in source safe, and then can be used by others who are creating installers from those release binaries. I can add the files directly through the source safe client, but I prefer to use the VSS features through the VS IDE. If I add the...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
