How to use VSS with VS.NET while Clearcase client is on my PC


I use VSS for visual studio .net 2003 development. However I recently
installed the Clearcase client for use with Rational App Developer 6. When I
did that, Clearcase unexp;ectledly took over all source control operations
within VS.NET. How do I tell VS.NET not to use Clearcase, but to go back to
using VSS instead?

Hi Robb,

You can try to open Option windows from the tools menu. Select Source
Control/General in the left pane to see if it is using the Visual
Sourcesafe settings.

Also can you see Microsoft Visual Sourcesafe from the File/Source Control

If that still doesn't work, I suggest you try to re-install VSS on this
machine, because I think the integration between Visual Studio .Net and VSS
has been corrupted by Clearcase setup.

I uninstalled ClearCase client, and then re-installed it. It has a "custom"
option that I did not choose the first time. This custom option allows you
to de-select the VS.NEt integration.
