You can integrate a solution that is created by using Visual Studio .NET with Visual SourceSafe to implement source code control and to facilitate development in a team environment.
When you integrate a Visual Studio .NET solution with Visual SourceSafe, a project is created that can be administered from Visual SourceSafe Explorer. However, if you delete this project, or if you delete and destroy this project in Visual SourceSafe Explorer while the project is checked out in the Visual Studio .NET integrated development environment (IDE), you receive the following error message when you try to check in the project:
Additionally, the corresponding .sln file is deleted from the user's hard disk, which may result in data loss.
The operation could not be completed
If the project is deleted but is not destroyed, the project can be recovered from Visual SourceSafe Explorer. After recovery, you must check in the solution from the Visual Studio .NET IDE.
If the project is deleted and destroyed, you must restore the .sln file from a backup.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Visual SourceSafe.
