VSS VS.NET disconnect with "Invalid Handle"
Posted on 2006-06-26
This morning I was working along in Visual Studio.NET (same as always for the last 4 years) and suddenly my UPS failed, and my machine went down. I brought it back up, and now I can't open any of my projects in Visual Studio with Visual Source Safe. It throws the error "Invalid Handle." I can see the vss ini file on my network, and I can log in as Admin, but I can't log in as "me" (the regular user I use when I'm developing and working with files.)
My search of the net returns very little in the way of information about this error, and nothing that seemed to apply to me. I can get to the INI file in VSS just fine (no network problems.)
Has anyone seen anything like this, or have any idea where I can look for the answer?
