Add Solutions and Projects to Source Control


When you add a solution to source control, the solution becomes part of a dynamic versioning archive created and maintained by the source control provider. Each time someone checks in a new version of the solution, that version becomes part of the archive and is available to other source control users.

Adding a solution to source control also starts a system of centralized file management. Source control providers, such as Microsoft Visual SourceSafe, control access to source-controlled items; source control clients cannot write to local copies of source-controlled files without checking them out.

The following table describes the topics in this section.
