Visual_Merge Initialization Variables

Visual Studio 2005

Specifies Yes if visual merge is used when merging files, and No if visual merge is not used. You can also set this variable to specify visual merge only if there are merge conflicts. Otherwise the standard merge mechanism is used.

Visual_Merge = {Yes|No|Only if there are conflicts}

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, General tab. Set the Use visual merge box as needed.

Specifies the use of visual merge only when there are conflicts between changes in the two files that are being merged:

Visual_Merge = Only if there are conflicts
