Really? SourceSafe has to be the worst, least reliable, least portable way to manage source code that I have ever come across. Just the fact that you have to go through this jumping of hoops to unorphan checkouts proves it.
Reset Rieko's password and login as him, if that user doesn't exist anymore, just create it, VSS only checks the name, not any hidden GUID's or anything.
Yes, still stuck in the past with VSS. Which makes posts like this all the more valuable. This worked because part of my project was still on an old laptop which is now gone (right click on the checked out doc, view properties: the old hardware id was there). There was no way to get it back short of what is posted here. Thanks again!
