How to install Visual Source safe 6.0 in windows 7/

Answers

  • Hi Selvakumar Rathinam,

    Thank you for your post.

    After some research on the Internet, I found that someone has installed VSS6.0 on Windows 7. Thus, you might try directly installing it.

    To run SourceSafe on Windows 7, we should run it as an administrator, right-click the desktop icon. Go to the Compatibility tab. Check "Run this program as an administrator.
    When you launch SourceSafe, you'll get the UAC (User Account Control) dialog. Then click "Yes" to launch VSS.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen

  • Hi Yisum,

    Thanks for your answer, I've been searching for this for a while.

    I've done it and now it works ok. I also would like to say that if you want to use the deploy command you should run VSS as administrator too, if not the program will break down.

    Best Regards,

    Jose

  • Are you certain that it is hanging? I found this forum while letting the setup "hang" out on the other monitor. It took about 5 minutes to get through the initialization part of the setup, Windows thought the process had hung, then it came back.

    1. Make sure all install files are copied locally.
    2. Right click and select Properties from the context menu
    3. Select "Compatibility" tab.
    4. Select Compatibility Mode| Windows XP(SP2)
    5. Select "Run this program as Administrator"
    6. Click the [OK] button.
    7. Now right click the Setup.exe again and this time select "Run as Administrator"

    I have Visual2005 installed on windows 7 and using Visual Source safe 6.0.

    and also in this system VS2003 and VS2010 are installed.

    The problem is when i double click on any projects solun file created in vs2005 .. It didnt open  but if I try to launch the VS2005 and then open the soln file in the IDE it is working.

     

    Thanks

  • I believe he meant Visual Studio 2005. Is that what you want to know about?
