FIX: Source Control Info Not Preserved During Project Conversion

Article ID: 171848

Article Last Modified on 10/17/2003



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0 Enterprise Edition
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0 Professional Edition



This article was previously published under Q171848

SYMPTOMS

After converting a Visual C++ 4.x project that was under source control, the source control information is absent in Visual C++ 5.0.

CAUSE

During project conversion, Visual C++ 5.0 uses the mssccprj.scc file to gather information about source control instead of using the Visual C++ 4.x project .MDP file. The mssccprj.scc file is created by Microsoft Visual SourceSafe.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug has been fixed in Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 2.
