Visual SourceSafe 2005 and Visual Studio 2008 – Fix
After installing VSTS 2008 on my workstation and VSPro 2008 on our other development machine, I found a glitch with Visual SourceSafe 2005 that didn’t seem to exist in Beta 2.
After installing VSS on the machine, it doesn’t automatically set the Source Control mode to use Visual SourceSafe in Visual Studio 2008’s options.
To fix this, check the following:
Tools | Options
Under Source Control, change the “Current source control plug-in” from ‘None’ to ‘Microsoft Visual SourceSafe’. Restart Visual Studio 2008 and the menus and functionality load as expected.
