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

Hi,

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?

thanks

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
menu?

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.

Kevin,

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.

thanks

I have just found a very serious bug in the way Visual Studio interfaces with Clearcase... I found that once you have opened a code file in the IDE, the IDE caches this file and does not re-read it's contents EVEN IF YOU CHECKOUT THE FILE FROM CLEARCASE. This means that all of the work that was carried out on the file in any subsequent...

Has anybody already made experiences with clearcase under VS 7.1? It's not possible to convert any VS 6.0 project that has been under source control. If you do so, you get an "Unknown error" with almost every further action you do in VS! Furthermore, I get a linker error with these "semi converted" projects: cannot find libmmt.lib. Thanks...

Hi All, In my work place we are still using VS6.00 with C++ and are not allowed to use a newer version (to connect to source control). We also use ClearCase as source control software. What I did was to install VS 2008 Beta 1 on my machine and made a copy of my source directory to use VS2008 with it. I want to use VS2008 only as my...
