: : We are currently testing StarBase, comparing it to existing Visual SourceSafe and a testinstallation of ClearCase.
: : StarBase is integrated with Visual Studio - and this works fine in most cases.
: : However when I want to startup the first time (locally)with a project that already exists in studio, I cannot see how this is done without using the StarBase environment.
: : When using SourceSafe i find that Visual Studio has - in the File-Open Workspace dialog - the possibility to connect to sourcesafe and pinpoint a project.
: : How is this done with Starbase ?
: : The second question is more tricky. The following happened:
: : - I was up and running with studio connected to Starbase
: : - For some reason I disconnected the base for a while
: : - It was OK to reconnect later, but I selected the wrong project on the server. My files were not here and I was asked to insert them. I cancelled the "Add files" operation - I wanted to connect with the correct project.
: : - Now I was not offered the opportunity to connect to the right project. I couldn't disconnect either ..catch22!
: : Hoping for some good advice!

: Hi Klaus,
: Did you install StarTeam's Visual Studio Integration? You can read more on how to install the integration for Visual Studio as well as other IDE's in the manual IDE.PDF.
: StarTeam Support
: Fox Data
Yes, I did install Visual Studio Integration.
Now I have read the manual. The chapter "Using C++ workspaces created by others" states that one needs to use the StarTeam IDE to retrieve files first - then fire up the Visual Studio IDE.
I was hoping that i ALSO - as when using SourceSafe - were able to connect to a project existing in StarTeam (but not yet in my working directory) from within Visual Studio.
It seems that this is not possible.
I think this would be a neat feature...
