Visual Source Safe inbuilt with TFS


I'm trying to add existing project to VSS repository, but it is somehow not happening.
I've connected successfully to remote server where files are kept but on local system, it does not show up option on Right clicking the Solution with"Add to Source Safe/Control".

I'm using inbuilt VSS.
Any steps for getting it working? Also I want the releases(tested modification) to be stored as version (Is that what branching is for?)

That's already selected as Visual Studio team Foundation Server.

Remote server is connected and mapped to one of the local target on my system. But still it needs to give me option for solution in VS, on right click saying, Add to Source Control"

that's what I have read on msdn so far.

Just to be sure, are you using TFS or VSS as a source control system ?
I am guessing it's TFS , so how is security for the team project configured ?
you should be a member of the team project contributors or project admins groups to able to edit code there.
Also please make sure you have team Explorer installed.
