I too have the same problem. I wanted to migrate VSS database version6.0. I do not have VSS 2005.
Please help

You might have to make some minor code changes in order to do this.

Firstly, you'll have to remove the existing reference to ssapi.dll, then add a reference to the version of ssapi.dll that is contained in your SourceSafe 6.0d installation folder.

Then try and compile. If I remember correctly, you'll get a couple of compile errors, something about VssDatabase.Close - I don't think this method exists in the older version of SourceSafe. Just comment out these lines and see what happens.

Sorry I can't give you any more detail, but I don't have (any) version of SourceSafe installed and I deleted the testing VM's for this some time ago.
