Reg Visual Studio and clearcase

Hi ,

I have quite a few questions about Visual Studio :Net 2003 and clear
case
Could anyone please help me with the answers.

I have converted a workspace abc.dsw from visual studio 6 to visual
studio .Net 2003 which
has three projects a.dsp,b.dsp,c.dsp.

As a result of conversion I see the follwing files in my directory--
abc.sln, abc.suo, abc.ncb,
abc.ccscc, and .vcproj; .vcproj.vspscc; for each of the projects and
..ncb for two of the projects.
1.Could anyone please tell what all files are generated during the
conversion and what files among them have to be brought under source
control.Should all the above files be brought under source control.
2.should the projects be brought under source control from within the
IDE or from the clearcase GUI.I am experiencing a lot of probelms
trying to bring the converted workspace and projects under source
control.Could anyone help me out.

3.What are the .vcproj.vspscc ,.suo files for and do they need to
checked out while compiling and building projects.

Thanks in advance

The following files can be added : abc.sln, .vcproj; .vcproj.vspscc;
Never add .ncb file to clearcase.
I didn't see abc.ccscc,
2.should the projects be brought under source control from within the

Both way can work. You may have problem working in Dynamic view. VC++
2003 cann't save a FileElement even you have checked it out. It is a bug
of VC++ 2003 IDE, while VC++2005 IDE fixed this.

3.What are the .vcproj.vspscc ,.suo files for and do they need to
checked out while compiling and building projects.
You don't need to add .suo file into source control.
Thanks in advance

Thank you very much.

The .ccscc file contains the information about the projects that are
part of the solution.

Could you please check the below if have visual studio and clear case
integrated.

In the visual studio IDE goto File-->Source Control--->Change source
control,you get a window withe projects and solution listed with a
check box against each of them showing whether the project is valid or
invalid(if it is controlled) or Not controlled.

It has some buttons for bind etc.

Could you please tell me what binding,server binding,binding root all
about.

For projects that are converted from visual studio 6 to visual studio
..Net 2003 and added to source control from the clear case GUI it shows
all the projects as connected and valid but the solution is shown to be
not controlled.

What should be the ideal settings that has to be here?

Is the service pack for visual studio .Net 2003 released and does the
service pack address the bug you have mentioned in your previous mail.

Please provide me with any links if you can find about these things.

I would be greatly thankful to you if you can clear my doubts.

Best Regards,
