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\MyApp.exe.manifest;Deployables
\MyApp.vshost.exe.manifest" is an invalid value for the
"InputManifest" parameter of the "GenerateApplicationManifest" task.
Multiple items cannot be passed into a parameter of type
"Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITaskItem". 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?
