For some reason, I can't check-in files.
We normally keep files checked out in the working
directory and after making changes there, check them in,
but leave them checked out. Using VSS 6.0c.
Recently when we try to perform a checkin, nothing gets
checked in, no error is reported, but no new files are
checked in. I cab do a Diff between files in VSS and the
working directory and see a difference, but those files
aren't checked in.
I recently completed an analyze, had some corrupted files,
fixed them, but to no avail. The computer's Administrator
user, with full prvileges runs VSS and VSS Admin runs
under user admin.
A see some things that look funny. but don't know if
1. In logging in to VSS admin the admin user is the
default, is greyed out, and can't be changed? shouldn't I
bee able to choose to log in as another user?
2. The VSS journal log shows that sometimes files were
checked in as Administrator and sometimes as Admin. I
understand how this works with Administrator since that is
how I log in to the computer, but I don't understand how
this works with Admin since there is no admin user on the
computer and admin is only a Vss Admin user. Would this
cause a problem if one or the other users originally
checked them out and now another is trying to check them
3. I ran Analyze from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual
Studio\Common\VSS\win32 and I believe there was a MS
Knowledgebase base article I later found that said not to
run it there because it would cause some problems with 32-
bit something or other. What is the problem and what
should I do about it?
