How can I resolve the error COM error message: Unspecified error. Offending Visual SourceSafe Object?
This error can be resolved by re-registering the ssapi.dll file (located in the VSS Install Directory).
The command to register a .dll file is regsvr32 (see example below)
C:\regsvr32 "enter path to the specific .dll file"
The default installation path for this file is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\VSS\win32\ssapi.dll"
