The Microsoft Source-Code Control Interface
If your source-code control system conforms to the Microsoft Source-Code Control Interface, you have access to the commonly supported source-control features available in the Visual C++ environment.
These integrated operations do not encompass all possible capabilities of source-code control systems. Certain source-code control operations require that you use the programs or features of your installed source-code control system. These operations include adminstrative tasks, such as designating locations for master versions of files, creating network connections, setting permissions for drives and/or directories, or adding user information and permissions to the system.
If your installed source-code control system supports other operations in addition to these, the Visual C++ environment provides access to them from the Advanced buttons. Advanced buttons can be found on several dialog boxes, including the Source Control tab of the Options dialog box (Tools menu, Options command), the Add to Source Control dialog box, and the Check In File(s) dialog box (Project menu, Source Control submenu commands). If no other operations are available, the Advanced buttons are dimmed or are not visible.
