    Visual SourceSafe w/ FP? (all)

    How does one use VSS to control the source of a website?

    i havent been able to find any text anywhere that says how this is supposed to work. Or perhaps i have seen the text but just dont understand it!

    Not I, said the fly - I wrote a script to back up the directory structure and give it a unique name before publishing. Sadly, it's manual, so one screw-up and you're toast...

    I have NEVER used Source Safe, however, you may be looking for Share Point Services. Don't know much about either, but I did help out at a Microsoft 'Load-N-Go', which showcased Share Point Services with FrontPage XP and Windows 2000 Server. I didn't see much of the presentation, but the gist of it was the sharing of web development (I think! <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>). I did get a free copy of FP XP and Windows 2000 Server out of the deal though! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I appreciate the fact that I am not alone <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Here's a quote from the FP "help"
    <hr>For information about how to integrate Visual SourceSafe with FrontPage, see the Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit.<hr>
    The RK is a book+CD for sale by MS. I checked the contents online, no reference to this "problem". <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Searching at MS reveals:

    Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 171116 - HOWTO: Enable VSS Integration with FrontPage and Visual InterDev
    Microsoft FrontPage 97 for Windows
    Microsoft FrontPage 98 for Windows

    Not sure why the trail ends there... there may be more leads in the Office Developer Solutions documentation on MSDN.

    Gaak! check this out ~ it makes VSS useless IMO.
    <hr>All Visual SourceSafe operations are performed by FrontPage Server Extensions on the Web server itself, not client machines.<hr>
    Thanks, Jefferson!
