Is there a free or cheap program that provides some sort of source control and co-operates well with Visual C++? As far as I can tell, the academic version of Visual Studio doesn't come with Source Safe :(

i am using a combination of WinCVS / TurtoiseCVS. the latter integrates very well into windows explorer which works with all programming environments and in this way is enough for MY needs (private and professional) :)

Thanks. I found wincvs, but so far, I haven't figured out how to set it up just to work locally. I'll play around with it in a while...but the server/client part doesn't seem to be what I want. I'm looking more for just versioning so I can rollback to previous code versions if I wish. Basically, I just don't want to have to zip up my code directory everytime I make a change.

wincvs is just a cvs client, the last time I checked. You'll also need the cvs server, which may be available for Windows or not.
In any event, you'll need to create a repository that is separate from your current working directory. If you can do that with the tools provided by wincvs, you're in business.

forgot to mention that i have a second box running linux...
here is the cvs client and server for windows:
but the authors donīt recommend using it in a production environment - what ever that means :eek:
