Wednesday, July 16, 2008 12:19 AMWhen I open certain solutions in VS2008 SP1 Beta, I get the following message:
The solution appears to be under source control, but its binding information cannot be found. It is possible that the MSSCCPRJ.SCC file or another item that holds the source control settings for the solution, has been deleted. Because it is not possible to recover this missing information automatically, the projects whose bindings are missing will be treated as not under source control.
I'm using Visual Sourcesafe 6.0a on a Windows XP Professional x64 Edition SP2 machine. The strange problem is that I'm the only one getting this problem so it does not make sense that the sourcesafe projects are corrupted or missing anything.

For start, you may want to upgrade for free to VSS 6.0d by installing VS6 SP6 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=77e4e564-01b2-461a-9fa0-03e138694c7f&DisplayLang=en (VSS 6.0b and older had bugs and were not recommended starting with VS2002)
As for the message you see, it probably have something to do with the way you're opening the solution.
The first time you're opening a controlled solution on a new machine you have to open it from source control (File/OpenProject/click SourceSafe node in dialog's bottom left, etc). Only after that it's ok to open it from disk (or from Most Recent Projects list).
If you suspect something is wrong with the bindings, you can use File/SourceControl/ChangeSourceControl dialog to fix them (although I suspect that's not the case if other team members don't have the problem)
