Merge_Ext Initialization Variable

Visual Studio 2005

Sets the extension that Visual SourceSafe uses to create a temporary file for a merge operation. The default extension is .mrg.

NoteNote

Currently the merge file can cause problems if its temporary folder path is near the maximum length of 260 characters.

Merge_Ext = <file name extension>

When the merge operation is complete, Visual SourceSafe either renames or deletes the temporary file. Thus you do not generally see this file. However, if there is a failure during a merge operation, you can look for the temporary file in order to determine any problems.

Assigns all temporary merge files the extension .mrg:

Merge_Ext = .mrg
