How to Configure Source Control for Visual Studio 2008

When you have first installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and Micrsoft Visual SourceSafe 2005, there is not initially a configured relationship between the two applications.
Source Control is not a menu item at this state until you configure the Source Control plug-in by using the Options dialog screen.

You can open the Options dialog screen by selecting Tools in the main menu then selecting Options submenu item. Drill down to the Source Control and Plug-in Selection in the options treeview.
There is a drop down list which lists available Source Control options and applications and an option for indicating not to use any of the source control software. In order to use Microsoft Visual SourceSafe 2005, you can select “Microsoft Visual SourceSafe” in the available source control plug-in combobox.
