When you join a group project, you
will usually need to retrieve a local copy of a project that is
already in the source control database. (The only developer in a
group project who doesn't have to do this is the one
who created the project in the first place.) To do this, use the File
Source Control Open from Source
Control menu item. You will be presented with the login dialog (Figure D-2 ) to allow you to specify the database you
want to use. Next, you will select the appropriate folder in the
database. When you press OK, VS.NET will download the solution and
all of its projects to the local folder that you specify.
You have to do this only once for any particular solution on any
given developer machine. If you simply want to refresh your local
copy so that it is in sync with the version in source control, use
the Get Latest Version technique described earlier.
