Branching option is disabled unless I Share first.

    Question

  • I just received VSS2005 Standard Edition.  I want to perform basic branching, but the Versions-->branch... option is always greyed out (disabled), unless I share the project files first.  I do NOT wish to share the files; I only want to perform a simple branch.  According to the Help, I do not have to share first in order to branch.  I should be able to do a basic branch from any file.  Please help.  Is it possible that I have a "promo" version of the CD (I purchased it from www.software media.com)? Thanks in advance for any help.

  • If you click that checkbox then the item will never be shared.  The branch happens immediately.

  • Here's the quickest way to branch: Versions -> Share -> check the "branch after share" box.

  • Thanks for the fast response, Richard.  How do I do this without sharing?
