VB3.0/MS SafeSource locking

This one may be a tough one. I have code for a project that was written in VB 3. Apparently, this project was also maintained through Microsoft Safe Source, because all of the files are locked as read-only. I don't have Safe Source, so I need to find a way to unlock the files without it. Does anyone know of a way to unlock these files manually?

If I understand the question correctly, I think you need to remove the read only attribute on the various files in your project using windows explorer or file manager.
