SYMPTOMS

After you perform a merge operation on a file in Microsoft Visual SourceSafe 2005, only three accounts can access the merged file.

Consider the following scenario:
  • You are working on an ASP.NET Web application project.
  • You are using Visual SourceSafe 2005 for source control.
  • When you check in the project files, you perform a merge operation on a changed file.
In this scenario, only the following accounts can access the merged file:
  • System
  • YourAccount
  • Administrators
Note The placeholder YourAccount represents the account that you use to log on.

When this problem occurs, the ASP.NET Web application may not run.
