Convert the Visual Studio 2002 web projects Located in Visual Source Safe 6.0

74 New Member

Currently I have 6 web projects located in Visual Source Safe 6.0, as usual, everytime I will open solution file located in my local computer, connected to source safe, then check out/check in some files and work on it.

Let say, I want add new page to web project named websiteOrder.sl n, i will open websiteOrder.sl n in my local computer, connected to websiteOrder.sl n located in Visual Source Safe 6.0(source safe located in another server).

Then i will check out the solution, add page and checked in. as usual.

Recently, I installed Visual Studio 2005 in my computer, I wish to convert this websiteOrder.sl n project (version Visual Studio 2002) to Visual Studio 2005 version.

Well, I understood that I can open Visual Studio 2005, open project -> choose websiteOrder.sl n. It will prompt and asked me to convert. Fine, I choose to convert, well because this websiteOrder.sl n always connected to source safe at the time it is being opened.

My question is, should I disconnected the websiteOrder.sl n
project to connect to source safe, then only do convert?

OR should I leave it as usual 'work connected' to source safe, and choose to convert? after converted, my local websiteOrder.sl n will changed to version Visual Studio 2005. Is my wensiteOrder.sl n located in source safe server being convert to version Visual Studio 2005 TOO (if i choose work connected to source safe as usual and perform convertion?

Or only if i check IN \ the solution, then only convert those websiteOrder.sl n located in source safe server too?

Two method I think of , which one is correct?

Method 1--->
1) Open Visual Studio 2002 websiteOrder.sl n with Visual Studio 2005 IDE tool
2) choose as usual, work connected to source safe
3) because of open with Visual Studio 2005 IDE, ask me convert, then select convert
4) CHECK IN all solution, because want convert websiteOrder.sl n located in source safe server too.

Method 2--->
1) Open Visual Studio 2002 websiteOrder.sl n with Visual Studio 2005 IDE tool
2) choose as usual, DISCONNECTED the project to source safe
3) because of open with Visual Studio 2005 IDE, ask me convert, then select convert
4) DELETE Visual Studio version 2002 websiteOrder.sl n located in source safe
5) Add the new converted version(VS2005) websiteOrder.sl n to source safe server again.

Please help?


websiteOrder.sl n is Visual Studio 2002 web project, it consists of 10 files ( example order.aspx, delete.aspx ......)

I would make a backup copy of your project and convert that to .NET 2 using VS 2005. In theory, it shouldn't make a difference whether you are using VSS. HTH.

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.
