Also use the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel to remove Visual SourceSafe from a Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise installation. However, you begin this removal process by choosing Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition in the Add/Remove Programs dialog window.
NOTE: Simply deleting the Visual SourceSafe folder from your computer will not remove related registry entries. Allowing these to remain can cause problems with other applications, especially those that were integrated with Visual SourceSafe.
To completely remove Visual SourceSafe 6.0 from your computer:
- Remove the application using the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel. If Visual SourceSafe was installed through the Visual Studio 6.0 component selection dialog box, you must clear the Visual SourceSafe checkbox first, and then continue with the installation process. It will register that you have made a change to the Visual Studio 6.0 installation and will continue with the uninstall of Visual SourceSafe.
- NOTE: This step will delete your old database, so make a backup copy of any data you want to keep before you proceed.
Delete the remaining SourceSafe items from your computer by deleting the Visual SourceSafe folder and its contents.
- Empty the Recycle Bin.
You must empty the Recycle Bin if you plan to reinstall Visual SourceSafe after you've removed it from your system. If you delete the Visual SourceSafe folder from your machine but forget to empty the Recycle Bin, the installation program will locate the deleted Visual SourceSafe folder in the Recycle Bin and treat it as an installed version of Visual SourceSafe.
