ms source safe project out of sync


I would like to find out how to update files in source safe.

The copy that is there is out of date, and the one I have in my local machine is the newest version.

Can someone explain the steps on how to do this, or provide any helpful information?

Thank you.

How do you get to the " don't get a local copy" checkmark?

when I do right click on the solution, and select "check out for edit"

I do not see any check mark. I only see:

Lock Type, and it gives 3 options

unchanged - keep an existing lock

check out - prevent other users from checking out and in

check in - allow other users to check out but prevent them from checking in

Don't you have SourceSafe installed?

I have a SourceSafe Explorer in my Programs list. The Plug-in is only in Visual Studio...

If you don't have this you could check in Tools -> Options -> Source Control if you have checked "Don't show Check Out dialog box when checking out items".
No i do not have sourcesafe installed. i only have the plug in in VS.
I do not see the option: "Don't show Check Out dialog box when checking out items"
In my VS 2012 it is under Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Environment.
