Adding required files to Source Control for VSeWSS projects

May 20, 2008 1 comment

After creating a new project in Visual Studio 2005 using the extensions for WSS 3.0, only part of the project’s required files are visible in Solution Explorer.

You can view all the files used to create the WSP for deployment using the WSP View (Views>Other Windows>WSP View) but that still doesn’t help you when you need to add the files to source control.

Instead, I recommend that using Solution Explorer, you click on the Show All Files button and then add the pkg folder to the Visual Studio project.  This will ensure that the XML files required to deploy your solution are saved to source control along side your actual coded solution.
