\\sourcesafe\vss\users\[linkoblast]\ss.ini" not found

In Visual Studio, when you open any file from Visual Source Safe, you may get this error.
\\sourcesafe\vss\users\[linkoblast]\ss.ini" not found
The fix is to copy another users ss.ini file, remove user or machine specific settings and place that in your folder, and start vss. easy.
just noticed there is a temp file sst1116.tmp in the folder - that's probably the ss.ini file that vss was updatng when something happened. renaming that file to ss.ini also did the trick
