The Project files generated by VS7 are stored in XML format. The format is different from VS6 but it is not binary. Open one up in your favorite editor to be sure... I have worked on several small projects, migrating them from VS6 to VS7 with no problem. Your mileage may vary. I have not tried to compile and test CVSNT with it yet, though. -mark -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-admin at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-admin at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Tony Hoyle Sent: Wednesday, February 06, 2002 12:07 AM To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] Visual Studio .NET for CVS-NT?

We haven't received the release yet (Still on beta 2) but I assume it's due some time as we have MSDN Universal (that said we haven't had an official release of XP yet either... MSDN isn't half as reliable as it used to be). VS.NET uses a binary format for its project files... I assume there's some kind of upgrade path but there's little chance of being able to manage these in CVS, and there's obviously no downgrade. This fact alone has actually led to a comapany wide decision not to adopt VS.NET where I work... I'm not even allowed to install it in case it upgrades something and screws up the development tree (We got burned with the Access 97/Access 2000 switch which nearly cost us an entire release - someone installed Access 2000 and viewed some critical databases with it, rendering them unusable).
