Adding binaries to source safe

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 files to the solution(not within a project), then they
are not added to source safe for some reason.

If I do an Add Existing Item to the projects, then the projects give
me an error saying:
Error 2 "Deployables\My App.exe.manifes t;Deployables
\MyApp.vshost.e xe.manifest" is an invalid value for the
"InputManif est" parameter of the "GenerateApplic ationManifest" task.
Multiple items cannot be passed into a parameter of type
"Microsoft.Buil d.Framework.ITa skItem". MyApp

Additionally, I've noticed items under "Solution Items" are not added
to source safe at all by the Visual Studio IDE. I suppose this is
because anything not under a specific project is not necesarily
"source code", but not every part of a software solution is source
code. But I have other documents and content that really should be in
source safe, but are relavant to the Solution as a whole, not just a
project in the solution.

Any suggestions?

I am building a VB.NET application in Visual Studio.NET 2003. I have an existing project with code and forms I want to reuse in this project.

Hi, I have to homologate my binaries so I need them to be byte-per-byte identical after each compilation (if the source code is the same, logically). Does anybody know how to achieve that with either compiler options or modifying some parts of the binaries?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
