There shouldn't be any (major) problem with project groups in SourceSafe.. simply set up new "projects" within the main SourceSafe project.

Have you tried and failed ?

Yes. I have tried. I create different projects for my VB projects. but I got problem when I load it in to VB. e.g. my project group was called myapp.vbg and I got three projects namely UI.vbp, Businss.vbp and Database.vbp. Now I create a project MYAPP in VSS for myapp.vbg and then create three projects UI, Business and Database under MYAPP.
And then now I want to load all the projects into my VB application, I select create project from sourcesafe and then select MYAPP as my project, however a message appear "There is no makefile associated with this project, unable to create a VB project from this sourcesafe project"...
what can I do? is it really not support? and I can't find any document about project group with VSS in MSDN.

If your project group is going to remain static then I would leave the VBG file outside of sourcesafe, and just have all the VBPs and their associated files in it... after all the VBG only handles the binding together of the VBPs - there's no real need to track or control the file.

Then just have three subprojects for Business, DB and UI.

I dont use Create Project from SourceSafe - just use the main sourcesafe program and Get or CheckOut all the files from their respective folders. Then when you load them up in VB it should pick up the link to SourceSafe

I'm using this technique quite happily on a number of projects
