If there are .vssscc files in the folder, then try deleting them. It may be that they are holding onto VS source control info.

I'm not able to reproduce this in a simple case, but maybe I am misunderstanding: If I checkout a file in an Edited or Renegade state, and have my options set to Overwrite and Prompt, it will prompt me before overwriting the file. However, note that the prompt is only displayed if a modified file re...

OK, I see what is happening. The problem is that when you delete a file and re-add another one of the same name, the new file is a completely new entity in Vault - it is no longer tied to the working file in your working folder. So, when the client does a Get Latest, and there is a file of the same ...

By version 1, do you mean it reports it as being version 1, or that the contents are still the old file? Note that if you delete a file and re-add it, it becomes version 1 on the server, as all the previous versions are deleted along with the file.

The user that is doing the Get needs to have his/her Repository Deletions set to "Do not remove" (not the user who does the delete/re-add). Both "Remove working copy" and "Remove working copy only if unmodified" will trigger it.

Labels are just tags on files and folders, so the file itself is "primary" in this relationship. Without the file, there is no label for the file, so that is the design issue. Yes, our obliterate mechansim needs serious work. It won't be ready for 3.5, but we plan to redesign it for 4.0, tentatively...

Some things to note about this bug: 1. It only happens on the first Get Latest after someone has deleted and re-added a file of the same name and your Repository Deletions option is set to "Remove working copy", and you didn't do a Get latest between the time the other user deleted the file and re-a...

There isn't much we can do about the first issue because of the design of Vault, but actually that design makes it hopefully not as big of an issue as you might think. Vault actually stores only one copy of historical versions of a file that exist in trunks and branches. So, a file that is in both t...

This page is created automatically during the install, and is static after that, so you can edit it to fix it up to display the server name and protocol that you want.

Try unbinding the project (via Change Source Control), and then explicitly binding it to Vault.

This sounds like the approach I would prefer - however, surely I still need a 'clean' (i.e. NOT under source control) version of the project to convert to VS2005 which I can then add to the new repository? I cannot risk doing anything to mess up the original VS2003 code (unless I have a new job to ...

One approach would be to completely copy the Vault database to a different server, and have the testing happen on a different server. You'd do an Open From Source Control on the new server to a new working folder locally, and then invoke the VS2005 conversion tool, and then checkin the new changes t...

Is it possible the SQL restore didn't actually work, and everything got rolled back? Or that the backup copy doesn't contain what you thought it should? The backup/restore mechanism is all handled by SQL Server. If a database restore didn't change the database, then try it again via the SQL manageme...

Just to follow up on this - it looks like a Visual Studio bug, as they are not calling into us to delete the subfolder. The same problem exists when using SourceSafe as well.
