A Visual Source Safe problem

Hi all,
I have two VSS databses A (old) and B (new), which they both contain the same project (a copy of the project in A exists in B - political reasons... don't ask).
The problem is that I can't connect the VC6 to databse B, and from some reason, every time i try to open the project from the new database (B) the VC6 is automatically connected to the old VSS database (A), even though the paths of the projects are different.
I've checked all the .dsp and .dsw files and made sure they all point to the right paths.
i've found out the a lot of the mssccprj.scc files that exist in A are missing in B.
Do you have any idea why my project from database B keeps connecting to database A?
Thanks,
Udi

Try to open the mssccprj.scc in notepad and change the database path.
I never tried it myself, so I don't know if this works.

Did you try to open VSS db(B) before openning the VC project?
