Visual Source Safe Integration with Visual Basic 6.0 not showing up.

I have reciently installed a development environment on Server 2008. Part of the development environment includes Visual Basic 6.0 (SP6) to support our legacy product. Everything appears to be working fine with the exception of source safe options within the VB6 IDE, there is none.

Has anyone had a simular problem and figured out a fix for it or can someone point me in the right direction to enable these options within the IDE?

You'll probably need to install an older version of sourcesafe for integration in VB6...

The VB6 / Source Safe Integration works on my other PC's and on the previous installation of my dev environment. I am not sure why it is not working on server 2008 but I suspect it has something to do with the virtualization it does of the file system...
If I find a solution I will post it here or if anyone else has seen this please let me know.

Thanks

Figured it out.
Turns out it was a problem with UAC. I disabled it, uninstalled VB6, deleted the VB6 directory, and reinstalled.

Afterwords the sourcesafe integration worked as expected.
