This is not answer to my question, you are answering me to buy VSS 2005, as I mentioned in my question I installed the server so obviously I need only client so I can install on develpers machine so they will able to add project but I dont want them to create seprate source safe DB.

Thanks for your answer but this is not right I forwarded this question to Microsoft I think I will update this Solution once I get the information.

Thanks for solution.
