SourceSafe solution root folder

Starting from MSVC2003 when adding a solution to SourceSafe
a solution root folder is created where the files are placed in.
This results in the file structure and VSS stucture to be out of sync.

To disable this feature:

In registry open
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\SourceControl

Select the key DoNotCreateSolutionRootFolderInSourceControl,
click edit, click modify
In the value box change 0 to 1 and click OK.

If the key isn’t present, create it with the correct value.
