Hi all,
what is the best way to versioning code (.net 1.1) edited on Visual Studio 2003 with RTC 4 .

The solution I've tried so far is to use "Rational Team Concert Shell" versioning the directory.

I've explored these alternatives, but both unsuccessfully:
1) RTC-VisualStudio-Client 4.0.2 is not compatible with Visual Studio 2003
2) use as sourceControl the RTC-MSSCI-Client but on VS2003 doesn't  work.

here the error on using MSSCI client:

There was a failure while initializing the MSSCCI Provider source control provider. You cannot use this provider to perform source control operations

RTC MSSCI Client failure on VS2003

Best Regards

I think it is a matter of how you prefer to work. If you like the shell client, continue using it. Otherwise, you could use the command line or the Eclipse client to manage your resources. Although, the Eclipse client option would be heavyweight since you're developing in VS 2003.

Thanks Tim for your answer,
do you think there are some possibility to use directly VS2003 integrated with the RTC4-MSSCCI protocol replacing VisualSourceSafe6 without the necessity to use eclipse or shell?

 My last opinion is that VS2003 is not integrated with RTC4-MSSCCI so I will use shell client.
