Force_Prj Initialization Variable

Visual Studio 2005

Automatically sets the current project based on the current folder before running a command. This variable applies only to the Visual SourceSafe command line utility SS (Ss.exe).

Force_Prj = {Yes|No|Ask}

The following table specifies the possible options that you can set for this initialization variable.

Yes

Sets the current project based on your current folder before running a command. Use of this setting allows you to change folders to move around your projects without executing the CP command.

No

Does not switch your current project based on the current folder.

Ask

Prompts before changing your project.

If you set Force_Prj to Yes, you are recommended not to give two projects the same working folder. If you do, Visual SourceSafe will be unable to determine the correct project.

You can set this variable in your Ss.ini file directly or in Visual SourceSafe Explorer. In Visual SourceSafe Explorer, use the SourceSafe Options dialog box, Command Line Options tab. Select the Assume project based on working folder check box to set this variable to Yes.

Specifies that Visual SourceSafe does not automatically change the current project based on the working folder:
