| Dear All,
| The files/folders in a Web Project located under MS Visual Source Safe 6.0
| are getting changed to .vsss.tmp extension
| [Ex: File test.asp changed to test.asp.vsss.tmp].The reason is unknown.
| This is causing many problems ( such as file test.asp as missing in the
| application ).When trying to change the extension of the file manually,the
| following error is appearing "File already exists".
| Please let me know the reason for the above behaviour & the solution.
| Any kind of help would be highly appreciated. Thanks !!
