Visual Studio 2008 and VSS 2005


Installed Visual Studio.Net 2008 Team System today. First thing noticed was VSS integration was not there. I use VSS 2005 for source control not Team Foundation Server(TFS). It didn’t take much time on google to find an update for VSS 2005 and a useful blog entry in Richard Berg’s Blog.
Once you apply the VSS update from this link you are all set to use VS.Net 2008 with VSS. (This update fixes a whole bunch of VSS issues as listed here.)

(Make sure that in Visual Sudio 2008, Tools > Options – Source Control, Microsoft Visual Sourcesafe is selected as current source control plug-in)

Cheers!
