26th Apr 2005 - Most Common VSS Data Export Support Issue
Recently we made a little check on our support mailbox. We looked for the most common support issues in order to see where we could improve the product. The result was very interesting and thought this is good information for all the VSS Data Export users out there.
90% of all support issues are related to problems with accessing the VSS database. The specific reason for this problem varies. Still a large proportion of this problem can be attributed to:
These problems have a simple common solution. Re-install VSS client and make sure it is able to connect to the SourceSafe database. Re-installing fixes broken installations and satisfies the minimum requirement. Connecting to the database ensures correct network connectivity.
If everyone were to keep in mind this posting we could probably discontinue product support!! Hey no fear I am just joking.
