Source code management
#1
Is anybody using source code management with the PPMAC Suite ?

I've struggled to use the built-in link to Source Safe, and in any case would like to understand the requirements of the IDE (which files should be saved, etc.) as I plan to move to Subversion.

I'm using Subversion on everything except the PPMAC right now, including VisualSVN with my VisualStudio 2008. I would love to be able to use VisualSVN with the PPMAC ID. From what I have been able to understand third party add-in are not allowed with the PPMAC IDE. I am hopeful that in the future this will change.

I'm not too bothered about it working from within the IDE - Subversion is pretty nice from Explorer already.

But I'm not sure which files need to be saved and which are autogenerated - I often seem to end up with errors reporting that the .ppproj file is too old and cannot be used, or the IDE crashing (that was apparently caused by leaving pp_proj.ini read-only, which wouldn't be a problem with svn).

In general the files you need to save are the ones you see in the IDE solution explorer.

The source files are OK, it's the ones that actually hold the IDE's configuration that I'm having difficulty with.

One of these (I think) does appear in the explorer - pp_proj.ini. However, that isn't sufficient - when I open the IDE I need to nominate an _sln file or a .pproj file in order to define the rest of the project files. Yet if I retrieve these files from sourcesafe, the IDE reports that the ppproj file is too old and I need to rebuild the project manually. I don't know whether the IDE is missing another file that I didn't archive, or if perhaps sourcesafe corrupts them.

With some further work, I have got it working. It seems that it's necessary to have a number of files read/writable, rather than being able to work on a read-only copy of the project. Furthermore, the IDE tends to crash or generate misleading error messages if the files are not writable.
