Sourcesafe Error

Sourcesafe Error

Sourcesafe Error

I'm having no luck getting my Interdev project in Sourcesafe. Please help!
I have installed Sourcesafe Server on the Web server and everytime I try to "Add to SourceControl" from Interdev it gives me the following error:

"cannot establish source control for the web application. The server does not have a source control system installed on it, or the user name is not recognized."

I get this error error from no matter where I try to add the project from, either from the client or the server itself.

I log on to sourcesafe from the client or server fine. The VSS directory is shared and the directory where the ini file is.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Try to play around the security in the VSS. You require to run administration for VSS and add users.

I've been able to solve this problem by adding my username to the administrator's group on the server...I'm still looking for a less draconian solution.
