Hi All,

I am having a problem to enable this VSS plugin in my Eclipse 3.3.1. The problem that I having now is when I try to 'set my VSS setting' (Team-->Share Project-->VSS Configuration Wizard)...It said " Unable to find any valid VSS installtion.
Are you sure that the VSS installation is not currupt?"
Basically, the VSS that I have is installed is in another machine(a file server).Even if I created a shortcut to that particular drive/dir of the VSS into my local setting, it still can't let me to click on FINISH.
At the end, it still prompt me the same error as I mentioned earlier.

Some of you might wonder why I installed the VSS in another server.Well, because we only bought 1 license for it.Others that 1 to use it, need to created a shortcut for it, then...they can access it from their local machine.
Any idea to solve this?

VSS comes with both server and client components. The client components should be installed on your PC and you should connect to them there. At least this is what I recall from my Eclipse installation (unfortunately, it is at work and I'm at home right now so I can't verify that, and even if I was at work by current Eclipse setup might not include the VSS connection). So are you saying that the client components are on the remote machine? If so, did you mapped a drive or are you using a network file name (e.g. \\servername\share\vss)? Try using a mapped drive.

By the way, sharing the client in this fashion still goes against the license, especially if several people will be doing the same thing. Only if you sit at the console of the machine with the client software, and log into the machine and use the software there are you covered.
