SourceSafe PowerToy: VSS User Management

[CheckItOut“A while ago the SourceSafe product team had a focus week on creating sample applications that solved common community issues. We call them “PowerToys”. The goal for these sample applications is to address frequently asked questions we observe in newsgroups/email/conferences etc. [...] We will publish the PowerToys as GotDotNet workspaces. That way we can collaborate with you in creating useful sample applications for the SourceSafe user community.

The first PowerToy to be available is the “SourceSafe User Manager”, you can access it at:

This is a simple application that allows exporting & importing of user lists from one SourceSafe database to another. It also allows importing a user list from a Windows group.”

    What I would love is a way to automate the creation of shadow directories–either by having an API to the VSS Admin utility, or giving me a way of telling the VSS Admin utility to re-read the contents of the srcsafe.ini file. Can I have that, please?
