SharePoint 2010 using VS 2010 and Visual Source Safe 2005

Overview: Client is implementing SP 2010, they don't have TFS and the source control is Visual Source Safe (VSS) 2005.
Steps to integrate VS2010 into VSS 2005:
  • Install the VSS client on your development server/environment;
  • Open the VSS explorer and add the project (Subsequent developers need to locate the file and download a copy) and set the working directory if pulling the project;

  • Open VS2010, select Tools > Options > Source Control > Plug-in Selection > Change the source control to "Microsoft Visual SourceSafe";

  • I prefer to hold my solution file locally and pull my projects however a lot of architects prefer to keep the solution in Source Control. Open the solution in VS2010 and you should be ready to run.
  • Tip: If you projects won't deploy click on the project and look at the "Site Url", this gets cleared down. Enter you local development server url i.e. http://demo1.app.dev/
