Description:
How to resolve error "The root archive "xxx" is not an ancestor directory for the archive"


Answer/Solution:
When trying to create a new project based on PVCS foreign archive, the following error is thrown...

"The root archive of "&ltdir path>" is not an ancestor directory for the archive "&ltdir path>". The archive will not be wrapped. Do you want to continue?"

This could happen when the PVCS root archive path was mapped to one of the drives in Windows. Resolution is change the PVCS configuration file to replace mapped drive with UNC naming convention and also use UNC naming convention in StarTeam client to read PVCS root archive path.
