Product Description

Visual SourceSafe 6.0 is the latest edition of Microsoft's award-winning version-control system for managing software and Web-site development. Fully integrated with the Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual J++, Visual InterDev, and Visual FoxPro development environments, as well as with Microsoft Office applications, it provides easy-to-use, project-oriented version control. Visual SourceSafe works with any file produced by any development language, authoring tool, or application. Users can work at both the file and project level while promoting file reuse. The project-oriented features of Visual SourceSafe make managing the day-to-day tasks associated with team-based application and Web site development more efficient.

Archive and Restore - These operations can now be performed from a user-friendly VSS Administrator wizard. In previous versions of VSS, Archive and Restore were only available from the command line. Move files - When you move a file, VSS now automatically shares the file to a new project, deleting it from the original project. In the new project, the file appears as shared.

Compare differences in multiple projects - This feature allows you to compare differences in a project against another project. Deploy individual files - In earlier versions of VSS you could only deploy a folder | using the new wizard, you can now deploy a file as well. Fast Get operation - Because of improved capabilities in VSS, you can perform a Get operation two times faster than in older versions of VSS. Filter history information - You can now view the history of files and projects without including labels. Label Promotion - This feature allows you to promote or add a file to an existing label.

Clean temporary folder option - This feature allows you to easily clean temporary folders now. Check external hyperlinks - In previous versions of VSS, only internal hyperlinks and jumps within the project were checked. Now VSS allows you to check hyperlinks and jumps outside the project. Create desktop shortcuts to VSS databases (from VSS Explorer) - This feature allows you to create a shortcut on your desktop that opens a specified VSS database. HTML Help - Previous versions of VSS used WinHelp.
