    web application that access Source safe DB rights.dat access denied problem

    Hi,

    I am developing a web application that access a source safe database in my network programatically. when i run the application from visual studio everything goes fine. But when I run the application from IIS, a problem happens when the application tries to open the sourcesafe database, an error: "access to rights.dat is denied". I gave this file access rights to EVERYONE and still there is an error. Does any1 have an idea what happens different when i run from IIS or from Vs??


    thanks alot

    Its probably because the IIS Anomynous user account (which all website visitors are viewing the pages under) has the least amount of perminssions. You really may want to re-think this project because unless you use Windows Authentication, your VSS DB will be subjected to hacking and VSS does not have a very strong security layer.

    Hi RobDog888,

    Thanks for replying.

    Most of time i disabled the IIS Anomynous access functionality and when i enabled it i use an account of a user already in the same network and the same error also appeared.

    Another thing i need to clarify,this web application will be used internally for users in a specific domain ,so i think there will no be hacking here.

    Thanks.
