How to unbind/bind solution/project in Visual Studio 2005/2008?

If you want to switch SCC provider for a project, or temporally exclude a project/solution from source control under SourceAnywhere Standalone, you may need to bind/unbind a solution/project. To do that, please follow the steps below: 

  1. Open the solution in Visual Studio.
  2. Make the solution and project files writable so that the unbind info can be written. You can check out the solution recursively. Or at a minimum you should check out the solution and project files. Or you can modify the file attribute to be writable manually.
  3. Unbind/Bind the solution and projects from SourceSafe through Visual Studio menu File -> Source Control -> Change Source Control.

  4. Close Visual Studio and then re-open it.
