Work remotely without network?

Postby KCinColorado on Tue Mar 20, 2012 11:06 am

Does Flare allow you to work remotely with a project that's bound to source control (Visual SourceSafe)? If I don't Check Out All and lose my network from home, I am unable to save all unsaved changes. It keeps asking me to log in to source control but there's no network connection to it. Does Flare support a disconnected mode for source control?

I think the issue is with VSS rather than Flare. Check with your VSS guru to see if there is a process where you can book files out to a local directory and work on them without needing a network connection. When you have finished, and there is a network connection, you can book them back in. TFS had a collection of tools that took this a step further but I'm not sure what VSS has to offer.

One way is to work offline and then check in changes without getting latest. That feature is available in Vault, but I assume it is also available in other source control systems. Before you try it, make a local backup of the entire project...just in case.

Disregard that last question. I guess you are referring to a feature in source control. Sorry.
