Visual Studio 2003 Check In

Hey folks - I got a client who cannot check in any files in visual studio 2003.

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this program so i'll do my best to explain what happened.

1) One day - client couldn't use frontpage extensions in IIS. Reinstalled those
2) Client reports his entire project in VS he can't check it in.
3) Standard reboot, go to VSS check in everything, check for any open file sessions, application event logs for errors - nothing.
4) Attempted to change source control, disconnect, still can't check in.

Errors on check in
"The URL 'xxxxxx' is not under source control.

Attempted to undo check out, change source control, unbind, save it as another project, etc.

Errors on undo check out:

"Unable to undo checkout of 'xxxx.resx'. Server error: There is a problem with source control integration on your server.

Unfortunately there's nothing else going on in the application logs on that server to provide any more insight to what might be causing this.

I'm hoping someone has a solution.

Thanks

Sorry, no direct solution available here. VSS is well known for catastrophic failures and losses of complete repositories. I'd recommend using SVN (Subversion) after recovering.

Figured this one out - had to uninstall front page extensions, check the files in, then reinstall frontpage extensions. Just FYI if someone else comes across this problem.

Front page extensions are through add remove programs > windows features > IIS > you'll see it in there.
