Sharing Common Classes

P: n/a
Ben
Hi.

Can anyone decribe a good method to share Common classes between
projects while using source control?

I used to just point everything to one directory... but started using
SourceSafe lately, and that causes some issues, since when you update
from sourceSafe you can get older versions of the Common classes...

So now, I'm trying to simply create a seperate project for the Common
stuff, and check it into a seperate project in source control. But
when I add it to an existing solution of the project that needs to use
it, I can't right-click the solution and choose Check In --- it asks
me if I want to copy my project's files to the Common project
folder... not sure why...

Thanks, I'll appreciate any advice to work in a better way !

btw, more specifically, the error is that is can't map the SLN file to
the current SourceSafe project... (I think it's trying to check in
the SLN to the Common sourcesafe project) -- i'm not sure how to get
around this... thanks !!
