Establishing AccuRev Source Control

The commands executed by AccuRev Plug-In for Visual Studio PE move data between the central source code repository (a depot) and a personal AccuRev work area (a workspace). To establish AccuRev source control over your Visual Studio project, it must be contained in a workspace, and the project’s files must be explicitly placed under source control with the Add to Depot command.

If you have been working with a previous version of AccuRev Plug-In for Visual Studio PE, installing the new version automatically updates existing Visual Studio projects or solutions already under AccuRev source control to use the new version. The sections below describe how to initialize AccuRev source control for new and existing projects. The instructions assume that any needed depots and/or streams have already been created and properly configured.
