I've got some problems with the P4SCC and the bindings with Visual
I'm using version of Perforce: P4/NTX86/2005.2/90475 (2005/12/13).
I was working on a solution with several projects and if the .suo files
of the solution were not present, it displayed for like 4-5 "Open
connection" windows. It was weird that instead of only one window, I got
5 of them.
Now I'm working on another big solution but now there is more then 20
"Open connection", near one for each .vcproj.
I tried to clear the binding automatically, it did not work.
I tried to clear it manually from the .vcproj and the .sln, it did not
I thought I found some clues about my problems here:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171339.aspx, but the problem
is that I test also what Microsoft said about single-binding connection.
The single binding was working properly, but the information was kept
inside file MSSCCPRJ.SCC, and this file contains information about the
name of my client spec. On Perforce web site it is mentioned to not add
this file inside Perforce (and it's making sense since the file contains
my client spec information), but if someone sync the solution localy and
tries to launch it, the following error message will appear:
"The solution appears to be under source control, but its binding
information cannot be found. It is possible that the MSSCCPRJ.SCC file
or another item that holds the source control settings for the solution,
has been deleted. Because it is not possible to recover this missing
information automatically, the projects whose bindings are missing will
be treated as not under source control."
Does someone know if it's possible to have a single-binding solution
containing multiple .vcproj and avoid the problem related above?
