Invalid DOS Path in VSS when you try to login Newly Created Database

leave a comment »

I had strange problem just now. Creating VSS new database and then login to that database gives me error

Invalid DOS Path X:\YZ\Users\ss.ini

This error is due to following reason:

The Admin program cannot find the Template.ini, a template for the Ss.ini. When a new user is added, the Admin program creates a directory for the user. It also creates a user file, Ss.ini, which contains default settings for this particular user. The Admin program uses the Template.ini file to create the Ss.ini file. If the Template.ini file is not in the Users directory, the error "File Not Found" is displayed.

See Resolution for More Information 🙂
