Merged my changes to SourceSafe, got the latest version, and now I get a C/W messages box saying "The project settings file for project "myproject.mcp" is locked, some of your user settings will not be saved".
Where is the "project settings file", and how do I unlock it?
Actually I think that message is generated when the XXX_Data folder (with XXX the project name) is readonly, or more precisely the CWSettingsWindows.stg file it contains.
Do not place the XXX_Data folder or any file it contains into the source revision control system, that folder only contains data which can be recreated like object files or browse information and other "volatile" information not necesary for building.
Being the lazy sot that I am, I have a script that recursively makes every file in the tree writable: chmod a+rw -R * chmod a+rw -R *.* then I edit to my heart's content (it's the way we work here. In prior lives I would check out a file or two - exclusively for my use while they were locked, like in the real world)
When I'm done, MKS (it's the way we work here. In prior lives...) tells me which files have changed. I lock them, check them in, and hope I don't have to merge someone else's changes. Hope this helps.
