VSS problem in using same projects in differenet solution

P: n/a
Hi,
I'm copying projects from a solution in the vss.
In my local system i created solution ,added that project(make
modification related to solution)
When i added this solution to vss, projects are referred to the
original solution not from my new solution
I will explain more clearly
i have project folder in vss(v4.5)
v4.5(folder)
project1(project)
project2(project)
I have all the above copy in my system
In my local system I created a new solution, added two projects(copied
to the local folder, where the solution 4.6 exists)
project1(project) , project2(project)

the solution name is v4.6
I added that solution to vss
v4.6(folder)
project1(project)
project2(project)
Actually after adding above in vss , project1,project2 still referring
to 4.5 only.
I want solution 4.6 has to refer the local projects only, not from 4.5
How to change the reference, under the new solution 4.6, i have
changed coding of project1, project2.So i want 4.6 to refer correct
project1 and project2

Thanks,
Mani

Hi,

Could you please try this?

Step1:
Take the latest version of the projects (1 & 2) from VSS to the
local/working folder.

Step2:
Now create your new solution in a separate folder. Copy the projects from
Step1 to this folder and then add the same as "ADD existing projects" to
this solution.

Step3:
Now check in the solution from Step2 to VSS.

If i understand correctly, this should ideally remove the dependency issue
you are currently facing..

Hope this helps!
Thanks -

Hi,
I follow the same steps as you told only, but it will refer to
previous project in VSS.
Any clue(I tried deleting the .scc and vss related files and tried,
it also fails)

You should also remove (carefully!) VSS related information from
solution/project file.
As variant you could try to make BRANCH of your project at VSS treeand
work with it instead of main code trunk
