SCCI Options

Pending Checkins

The Microsoft Visual Studio .NET IDE shows you the files that have been edited in the Pending Checkins window. You can easily discard or commit any changes from there immediately, or leave them till a later time to checkin with either the integrated tools or any other client such as CVS Suite Studio, TortoiseCVS or WinCVS.

VS.NET Right Click Menu

Right Click

With CVS Suite VS.NET Integrtion you can directly check Get Latest Version, Undo Checkout, Get, Check In and Compare by right clicking on files within the Solution Explorer. The options that are displayed are dependent upon the status of the files or directories that are selected.

You can perform tagging, branching and other administrative tasks using the CVS Suite Studio or TortoiseCVS.

SCCI integration Emulates Visual SourceSafe workflow

Many visual studio developers appreciate the simplicity of the Visual Studio workflow, but require an enterprise grade versioning tool. CVS Suite is the perfect combination providing integration with Visual Studio that implements an easy to use reserved system so that no two developers accidentally try and work on the same file on the same branch at the same time. Of course if you prefer an unreserved mode you can use a combination of TortoiseCVS and the Visual Studio plugin.

SCCI Control Portal

CVS Suite SCCI Integration includes a configuration utility that allows you to select between multiple SCCI providers. This is important when using Visual Studio .NET 2003 or other IDEs with multiple SCCI providers because the IDE that only recognises a single installed provider at a time.

SCCI Compatibility

We know that customers are using CVS Suite SCCI integration with: SQL Navigator, TOAD, UniPaaS, Magic XPA and in November 2023 we added supprot for PowerBuilder. CVS Suite integration should work with all SCCI compatible IDE's but if you experience any problems please contact our pre-sales technical support.

Familiar user controls

For Visual Studio users the SCCI integration provides the fastest way to get up and running with CVS Suite. The process and controls are immediately familiar to Visual SourceSafe and Visual Studio users. However behind the scenes it is the same tools used by CVS Suite Studio and TortoiseCVS making it familiar to long time users of CVS.

File compare

CVS Suite includes a powerful file comparison tool to simplify checking the changes you have made to source code, and even for restoring code that was removed in a previous version or on another branch.

Online Video Tutorials

Over on our March Hare Software YouTube channel we regularly release new video tutorials, including using Visual Studio 2015 and CVS Suite which also shows how to install the software, configure Visual Studio 2015 and then use it together with Bugzilla for change management and even generating a report from the Audit database using Microsoft Excel.

Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2017 native integration

CVS Suite Visual Studio .NET Source Control Provider (VSIX)

From CVS Suite 2009-6264 and later, you can download the native Integration for Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2017 direcly from the Microsoft Visual Studio Marketplace and Gallery. This is the first release of our native Visual Studio integration for CVSNT / CVS Suite. You can directly checkin / checkout from visual studio and see the results in the tool window. Note: Some workflows may not be currently compatible with this plugin, but we are looking forward to adding many additional features, and improving the workflow in the next release: CVS Suite 2.8.02.
