How do you set up integration of Visual Studio 6 with Visual Source Safe 2005?  I upgraded sourcesafe to 2005, but I still have some VB6 apps that I want to have integrated in the VB6 IDE.

Check in the file vbaddin.ini -- look for the line similar to the below and make sure vbscc=1:

[Add-Ins32]
vbscc=1

Another option that might work is in VB6, select Add-ins/Add-in Manager menu, and in the dialog that opens select the "Source Code Control" add-in line, and check the "Loaded/Unloaded" and "Load on Startup" checkboxes, then Ok the dialog. The source control menu should be available under Tools/SourceSafe after that.

Adding the line to vbaddin.ini was what I needed.  The ms docs have you uninstall vss6 and that must remove the line. vss 2005 install does not put it back.  Adding it back manually seems to work fine, even if it is not supported.  Thanks!
