How to: Pin a Version

Visual Studio 2005

Visual SourceSafe pins versions as described in Version Control. When you pin a file version, Visual SourceSafe does not delete versions that are more recent than the pinned version. If you want to discard all the recent versions of the file, roll back to the pinned version as described in How to: Roll Back to a Previous Version.

To pin a version:

  1. In Visual SourceSafe Explorer, select the file you want to pin.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Show History.

  3. In the History Options dialog box, click OK.

  4. In the History of <name> dialog box, select the version that you want, then click Pin. A pushpin icon appears next to the pinned file.

  5. Click Close.

To unpin a version:

  1. In Visual SourceSafe Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Show History.

  2. In the History Options dialog box, click OK.

  3. In the History of <name> dialog box, select the pinned version, then click Unpin.

  4. Click Close. Visual SourceSafe unpins the file so that the most recent version is the current version in the project.
