FAQ: Renaming or Deleting Files within Visual Studio.Net

Post by jclausius » Tue Feb 24, 2004 9:10 am

Why does a delete or rename from within Visual Studio .Net 2002 or Visual Studio .Net 2003, not have any affect on the files located within the Vault Repository?

The Vault IDE client interacts with the Vault Server through a set of documented set of APIs known as MSSCCI (Microsoft Source Code Control Interface).

While the normal Vault client is not restricted to this interface, any interaction through a dev tool will most likely be constrained by this interface. Currently, this includes Visual Studio.Net 2002 and Visual Studio.Net 2003.

Unfortunately, one of the limitations of MSSCCI is any rename or deletion of a file in a project invoked from the IDE does not have an impact on the files in the Vault Repository.

See http://support.microsoft.com/default.as ... -us;305516 for more information related to this problem.
