Ignoring .MySCMServerInfo in Visual Studio Web Project

Problem:
  • You are using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, 2008, or 2010 with Seapine SurroundSCM.
  • When you are working with Web project you see annoying .MySCMServerInfo file in each directory and furthermore, VisualStudio make you check them in when SurroundSCM does not want you to check them in. You don't get this issue when you are working on non-Web (e.g., "desktop" or class library) projects.
Solution:


Just in case the answer link is lost in the future, the idea is to add the Ignorable File Key (yes, Key with the name of the file(s) you want to ignore and not the Data) with file names you want to ignore from the source control. It works on Version 8.0 (VS 2005), Version 9.0 (VS 2008) and Version 10.0 (VS2010).

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Packages\
{8FF02D1A-C177-4ac8-A62F-88FC6EA65F57}\IgnorableFiles\.MySCMServerInfo]
