    I am attempting to access a VSS reporsitory using Visual Studio 2005 Interop
    on a WinXP x64 machine. I cannot even run the sample from the documentation.
    I get the error below. I can run the same code on Win2k3 just fine. True
    enough, the CLSID does not exist on the x64 box. I tried uninstall/reinstall
    and repair of SourceSafe with same result. I even tried install of .NET 1.1.
    Any ideas
    why SourceSafe is not registering? I see it in the assemblies.

    System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException was unhandled
    Message="Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID
    {783CD4E4-9D54-11CF-B8EE-00608CC9A71F} failed due to the following error:
    at vsstest.Module1.Main() in C:\Documents and
    Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Visual Studio

    I have no idea if this is connected, but I am assured that Windows 64-bit
    does NOT support interop debugging.

    One cannot step from C# code into C++ or C as one can under 32-bit and I was
    told that this is non trivial and not something likely to appear soon.

    I know your post is not about debugging, but the interop limitations may
    apply elsewhere.

    Thanks Hugo,
    I will keep this dubugging infoin mind.
    Sounds like my only option is to target my compile for x86 CPU.
