Can SourceAnywhere for VSS Server be installed on a machine different from the one hosting Visual SourceSafe database?

Yes. It can be installed on a different machine from the one hosting the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database, as long as they are connected.

If you get an error message "Error opening database <path to srcsafe.ini>", please click here.

Please be advised that Visual SourceSafe (VSS) needs to be installed on the SourceAnywhere for VSS Server machine because SourceAnywhere for VSS Server uses VSS API.
