Visual SourceSafe 6.0 crashes when opening a project in Windows 7 and VSS Get Latest Version is ON
Posted on 2012-09-13
I've Windows 7 Professional 64bit with SP1, Visual Basic 6.0 with SP5 and VSS 6.0d.
When I try to open any project and "Get Latest Version when opening projects" is set to Yes, VB6 opens the project, starts to Get Latest Version of every component, and when it tries to refresh the project it crashes, with the message "Visual Basic has stopped working. Windows is looking for a solution"
I've set compatibilty mode to Windows XP SP2 or SP3 on both VB6.EXE and VSS.EXE and it still crashes.
I cannot upgrade VSS to VSS 2005, because it corrupts the VSS database, and I cannot convert the database to VSS2005 because I should have to upgrade every programmers' VSS to VSS 2005.
Do you know if there's any compatibility check I should turn on to avoid this?
The event log throws this error message:
Application with errors: VB6.EXE, version: 184.108.40.206, timestamp: 0x39c140a3
