Application to Switch Version Control Systems

I have to use 2 different Source Code Controls: Microsoft Visual Source Safe and Rational ClearCase. Both of them provide a nice integration with the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE, so that I can checkout/checkin files while editing them.

Unfortunately, Visual Studio does not prompt you for the SCC to use (at least, I could find it). So I wrote a little utility that plays with the registry and lets you set a specific SCC as the default one.

    Thanks - this utility is exactly what I've been looking for. I'm surprised that there is no option to choose.

    Thank you for sharing!

    or I'm running a big batch build.

    So I modified this convenient program to disable scc when
    I select "- none -" from the combo box.

    Here are the diffs:


    RegCloseKey(hKey2);
    }
    //--start here, line 82 of SwitchSCCDlg.cpp
    int cbIndex = m_Combo.AddString("- none -");
    m_Combo.SetItemDataPtr(cbIndex, strdup(""));
    m_Combo.SetCurSel(cbIndex);
    //-- end here
    char data[1024];
    DWORD cbSize=1024;
    DWORD type;
