Using the SVCS Menu

The menu SVCS configures µVision for using a Software Version Control System (SVCS). Commands that steer the SVCS can be added to and executed from the menu. The command output is shown in the µVision window Build Output after the command finished executing.

Template files are provided for various version control systems. Refer to SVCS Menu for more information.

The picture below shows the menu SVCS when using template file Microsoft Visual SourceSafe.SVCS. The SVCS menu commands specify files using key sequences. The actual file used by such SVCS menu commands depends therefore on the selected item in the Project window or the current active editor file.

SVCS Example

Microsoft SourceSafe requires executing the command Set Current Project after you have selected a new µVision project. Remove the SSUSER environment variable from the configuration to use the login name of the workstation.

Configure the SVCS Menu

Open the configuration dialog with the menu SVCS - Configure Software Version Control. The picture below shows the entries that generated the menu items above.
