Don't forget the Share Permissions...

I was getting errors when attempting to access a Visual Source Safe DB configured as a share from the network:

error: Microsoft Visual SourceSafe
Unable to open user login file ....user.log

I thought how could this be, my computer user account is in the Administrator's group. I even tried copying a file to the\loggedin folder, and got this error:

Destination Folder Access Denied
You need permission to perform this action

Silly me. The sharing permissions were not set up correctly.

To fix, open sharing on the VSS DB folder. Click Permissions. Add the Users group, and assign Full Control.
