    Default Visual SourceSafe question

    Trying to get Visual SourceSafe going. Setup is simple. Two developers, one development server. Does VSS work with a local copy of the project and then update the server copy when you check a file in?

    Default Sourcesafe checks out the file

    to a location of your choosing and sets the attribute on the file writable (not read only). It also compares the file there to see if it matches the file it&#039;s about to check out, if they mismatch it warns. When you check in it stamps the file read only so you won&#039;t accidentally make changes unless you have the file checked out. Not sure if you&#039;ve looked at vault but I&#039;ve been happier with it than sourcesafe, better UI and it&#039;s supposed to be less prone to corruption. <BR>
