Adding a project/installer to VSS (where you want it to go!)

If you have a solution in visual studio, its probably made up of many relationships and dependencies. If the solution isn't source controlled immediately, you might run into a couple of issues putting it in Visual Souresafe (VSS) exactly where you want it to go.
The same goes for installers, and adding new installers to an existing source controlled solution.

The key is to add it to VSS before dependencies are added... otherwise, it'll pick up the fact that its above the binding root of the solution, and put it inside the folder you want, but inside two child nodes down; or something silly like that.

So the best way is to remove dependencies, or source control it before they are added!
