'Visual Source Safe with MPLAB'

Has anyone used Visual Source Safe (V5) with
MPLAB (V3.31) ?

Since installing VSS, I have had strange problems
when compiling projects. I can compile a single file,
but if I try to "build all" or "make project", I get
a "Error removing hex file" message.

I've even deleted the hex file with good ol' Norton
Commander, but i still get this error message.

And yes, I did book out all the files from VSS.

Hi

Yes I have, but I upgraded to version 3.40 before I installed Sourcesafe
on my PC. I would recommend that you upgrade to version 3.40. I have yet
to experience problems so far?

Sounds like MPLAB is encountering a read-only file which it cannot
delete.  Source Safe will mark its files as read-only when they are
checked in unless you tell it to remove the checked in file.

>From the message, sounds like you're checking in the .HEX file and
then trying to rebuild.  MPLAB tries to delete it when rebuilding,
then runs into the fact that it's read only, and prompts you with
that message.

Try Component Soft RCS, you'll be glad you did.

The hex file is definitely checked out. I've even changed the hex file tonon-read-only with Norton
Commander. That also failed. Then I deleted
it altogether (no hex files in the directory) with the same results.

What is the difference between the "make", "build", and "compile single
file" in MPLAB? Wouldn't the "compile single file" also require the hex
file to be deleteable?

Hmmm.  If you're still getting that "hex file can't be deleted" message, maybe
some other intermdiate file is read only and the message is just generic and
isn't specifying which file it can't delete.  Look at all the files created and
make sure none are read-only.  The editor makes a backup file called *.$$$, and
there are various other files, *.EFF, *.COD, *.LST that also need to be
eraseable.

"Make" uses the built in make facility to only build those files that are newer
than the last time you built the project.

"Build" compiles/assembles all files, regardless of date and last build.

"Compile Single File" allows you to simply compiler/assemble a single node to a
relocatable object, or in the case of the latest "dot" release v3.40.09b, it
can be used to assemble a single MPASM file directly to .HEX output, bypassing
the Project Manager altogether.

Yes, sounds like read-only HEX file.  You do not need to delete it when you
check it in (in fact you shouldn't, because then you cannot use MPLAB on
the "checked-in" version.  When you check in the files, make sure to mark
them as "edit-able" or "checked-out for modification" (I do not know Source
Safe's terms, I use different version control s/w).  This will remove the
"read-only" attribute and allow you to recompile.

Just remember, in spite of the pain, version control is a good thing!
Bob.
