[_John St. Clair @ 12/04/2002 03:17 PM_]( I'm not sure I agree with you on VSS integration problems -- I've seen a few, but generally I'm pretty happy. But your include problem seems fairly easy to fix: In VSS, create a subproject (subfolder) of your current solution. Share the files from the other folder into it, and then do a get latest from VS.NET. Since the files are shared, changes made in your project will be propagated back. Kind of a hack, but it should work._ > >

Don’t get me wrong - I am generally pretty happy with VS.NET in terms of the full product, but some parts do feel like a retrograde step. Yes, I could share the files and change the location of the relevant files in the project to use the integration. There are a couple of hundred of them organised in subfolders below the main include directory so it would be a bit of a pain. I also probably end up having to do this with the other projects that use the common include files and then I need to keep ensuring that I’ve got the latest version for each project before I build it rather than just once for all of them. I just feel a bit let down because this worked fine before.
