Run VSS and go to File->Open SourceSafe Database. On the dialog that appears, click the "Browse" button and navigate to the network location. Select the "srcsafe.ini" in that network location and click "Open". That database should not appear in your "Available databases" list. Select the DB and click "Open" and you should be able to browse the database.

Wow...  I sure fat-fingered that one! That should read:

That database should now appear in your "Available databases" list.

OK I followed those direction and they worked well. However how can I map or access my project.

I see all my projects listed in the view window in folder but im not sure how to access.

In my old system I have a shared drive PR and I could click on the map drive (C:\PR) and have access to all my project

How can I set something similar up?
