Set Working Folder Dialog Box (Explorer)

Visual Studio 2005

Allows you to set your working folder, which is a folder on your computer to which Visual SourceSafe copies database files when you want to work with them. You must specify a working folder to perform any action that copies a file from the database, for example, a checkout operation. The only command you can perform without a working folder is the View command.
