SpectrumSCM SCCI Installer
The SpectrumSCCI Installer will install an MS-SCCI compliant DLL into the
<SpectrumSCM_Install_Dir>/lib directory. The installer also adds several
registry keys to the registry so that SCCI compliant applications can detect
the presence of the SpectrumSCCI DLL.

and its integration with SCCI compliant IDEs.
Release Notes and Special Cases
BORLAND'S CODE WRIGHT:
Code Wright will detect the SpectrumSCCI plugin directly and will properly ask the user
if they wish to use SpectrumSCM as their CM provider. Code Wright does not automatically
update its project file to include the name of the project to use and the path of the
project. These attributes must be hand edited after a Code Wright project has been created:
- Create your project as usual.
- Select SpectrumSCM as your CM provider.
- Properly close your project and exit Code Wright.
- Edit your project file and locate the following lines:
Fill in these variables to match your project name and the location of your
project on your local machine:
- Save the file off and then restart Code Wright.
MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO VISUAL BASIC 6.0:
Visual Basic is not a native SCCI compliant program. VB 6.0 ships with a Version Control
Add-in that must be enabled before any external CM tool can be successfully used. Go to
Tools >> Add-Ins >> Addin-Manager and enable the add-in for Version Control.
You should have the following Add-Ins listed in the Add-In Manager:
Only the top item (SourceCodeControl) needs to be set to start at startup.
You'll also need to edit the following files and check for a few items:
For Visual Basic 5.0, the user will need to download the SourceCodeControl Add-In
from Microsoft and then install it as an add-in first.
SCCI Compliant IDEs that are known to work properly with the SpectrumSCCI Dashboard:
- Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (This is the reference application)
- Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 6.0
- Microsoft Visual Studio Visual Basic 6.0
- Microsoft Visual Interdev
- Borland's Code Wright
Other SCCI Compliant IDEs will probably work, depending on how well they have implemented
their end of the MS-SCC interface. If you try one and find that it does work, please e-mail
us your success story and we will add your entry to the list of known good IDEs.
