Visual SourceSafe plugin freezes IDEA when closing project

I'm having a problem with IntelliJ 6.0 and 6.0.1 with the Visual SourceSafe integration. If I have SourceSafe configured for use with a project, the IDE hangs/freezes whenever I try to either exit IntelliJ or close the project.

Has this happened to anybody else, or does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks,

Joe

It's a known problem and we are working on it. It occurs when there
are lot of files not under the version control (see Changes view). The
workaround is to exclude directories containing such unversioned files
from the project.

IDEA 6.0.2 fixing this issue is scheduled for the end of October.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Serge,

Thanks for the reply. Are there any other cases where this could happen? My entire project is under version control.

My project only includes files under version control

Are there any files in the Changes view that are listed as not under VSS control?

Serge,

When I bring up the Changes view, nothing is shown. I clicked the Refresh button, and it says in the status bar "Updating: SourceSafe", but nothing ever seems to happen. Nothing is even mentioned in the IDEA log in ~/.IntelliJIdea60/system/log/idea.log except

lij.localVcs.impl.LocalVcsImpl - purged 0 items

over and over.

Then I tried clicking the folder button to "Group changes by directories and modules", since I didn't have any change lists defined, and now it just says:
-- Default (No files) (updating...)

and nothing else.

Thanks again for your continuing support!

I'm afraid I don't have any other suggestions. I'll ask the responsible developers to read this thread.

Is there any step I could be missing in setting up VSS integration?
Also, the Changes view seems to be change list-centric. Is there a view I can go to that doesn't care about change lists, and just shows the VSS status of all the files?

I don't think that your configuration is incorrect. There are known IDEA problems with VSS integration that are causing such behavior on your system. All I can say is please wait for IDEA 6.0.2.

If our developers have any other suggestions or workarounds, they'll post them here.

A problem that seems to be related, is that when I try to check in something, I get a dialog that says "Please wait until VCS synchronization is finished" with an indeterminate status bar.

If that doesn't ring any bells, then I'll take your advice and wait for IDEA 6.0.2. Thanks for all the help.

I met same problems:
1.when i checked in some files to vss,a dialog popped up prompting "synchronizing with vcs ..." and never ends.

2.when closing idea,the ide hangs,i have to finish it in windows task manager.
BTW,All of my files are under control of vss

any reply will be appreciated!

What is the proposed date for the release of 6.0.2? The Visual SourceSafe problem is a bit of a biggie for me.

What is the ETA for IntelliJ 6.0.2? I really need to use Source Safe with IntelliJ.

This still happens with 6.0.2
I see the SS.EXE process running at 50% cpu, and IntelliJ is stuck.
Other VSS problems seem fixed (I can checkin, and checkout file).
