Impossible to add a database with visual studio 2008 and source safe 2005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have visual studio 2008 team system with visual source safe 2005 with the internet add-in installed.  It is running on windows 7 RC1.  I configured visual studio to use the "Visual Source Safe (Internet)" plug-in.  From visual studio, I select file->open->project and I select "visual source safe" in the left part of the open dialog.  In the right part of the dialog, I can see the "Item/Details/Web service URL" columns, but I have no way to add a new entry.  If I understand well, on XP you have a line named "add a database", I don't have this line with windows 7 so, I can't access my vss database.

  • Hi sbeaudoin,

    You have to configure the Database before you try to add with visual studio 2008 and source safe 2005.

    please refer the link to see how to configure and add a database,
