I currently joined to a .net development team and had a problem with setting up all neccessary solutions on my local machine.
A previous developer had a solution that tied to visual source safe, so I setup the visual source safe on my computer and got the most current version downloaded.
The problem is that when I create a new blank solution and try to add some of projects from the prevous solution, it does not copy the project files to the new solutions folder instead It seems to connect to the visual source safe and list files from the previous project. If I simply copy the contents of the previous solutions folder it does not even open. I want to be able to isolate the new solution from the previous one without making any possible changes to the visual source safe for the previous solution.
I am not sure I explained my problem correctly.
Please give me some advise how to setup a new solution with some of projects already available.
