Microsoft Project Files Are Not Added to Surround SCM

Article ID: 694  |  Last updated: 23 Dec, 2014

Note: This information only applies to Surround SCM 2009.0.2 and earlier.

Problem

Files are not added to Surround SCM from Microsoft Project.

Cause

The 'Hide extensions for known file types' option is selected in the Windows folder options. This causes Project to send filenames to Surround SCM without the .mpp extension. Surround SCM cannot determine the correct file to add because the extension is missing.

Solution

Disable the Windows 'Hide extensions for known file types' option.

  1. In Windows Explorer, choose Tools > Folder Options.
  2. Click the View tab.
  3. Clear the 'Hide extensions for known file types' option.
  4. Click OK to save the changes.
