Problems with SourceSafe binding - have to rebind every time I open project

I have an ASP.NET project that is under source control using Visual Source Safe 6.0.

Every time I re-open Visual Studio.NET 2003 I get the following message:
"The source control bindings for the Visual Studio 6.0 projects you are opening cannot be converted. All the new projects will be set to disconnected mode. Use the Change Source Control command on the Source Control menu to rebind the projects to their server locations."

The project is no longer bound to VSS. When I try to re-bind it, following the directions in the message (File > Change Source Control), I am able to rebind it but when I click OK to save the changes I get this message:
"Some projects have been bound to server locations that may to be incorrect [their bad grammar, not mine].
A location may be incorrect either because it does not contain the majority of the projects' files or because those files are not in the correct location relative to the specified server folder.
You should probably fix all the bindings in the solution. However, you may continue and bind these projects to the specified locations even when some may to be incorrect
[again, their bad grammar]."

I'm then given these options: "Fix server bindings" or "Continue with these bindings". When I click "Fix..." nothing happens. When I click "Continue..." I get: "Unspecified Error".

The only fix I've found so far is to start the VSS process over again by doing File > Open From Source Control and re-creating the project from VSS. But this, of course, is annoying.

Any ideas?

In the source safe explorer have you tried going to the project folder and checking the directory that your solution gets checked out to?
In the past have had this problem whereby the checkout folder has been deleted or subfolders of the root folder have been deleted on your local machine.

If you right click on the solution in source safe  and get latest version this will copy the files to your local machine and may sort your binding issues.

Have to rebind solution every time I open
Here is what I have going on. For one solution I work on, every time I open it visual studio tells me its under source control but its not integrated into visual studios source control, I have to choose permanently remove bindings, trying the temporary route puts me in a loop that keeps bringing me back to the screen asking for working temporarily unbound or permanently removing bindings.So, after I remove the bindings, I get a screen showing me the solution and the projects in it and allowing me to rebind it to source control. At this point I can work, but if I close out the solution or the...

opening VS2003 solutions and projects problem.
Am I able to open vs2003 sln and proj files in VWD EE? When I tried opening a sln file, the conversion wizard appears but does not detect the projects in the solution. When I try to open a project file, the project files do not open in the solution explorer, but the actual text contents of the project proj file is displayed instead. The (sln and proj)s work in VS2003, am I missing some intermediary steps or am I just not able to do it in VWD EE, which is strange since why then does the conversion wizard appear in the first place? The express editions only support one thing at a time. VWD ... problems (open project dnn)

VS.NET Opens my project very slow the first time in each day and loses the data gallery objects.
It seems like the first time in each morning, VS.NET (Enterprise Architect) opens my web application very slow. My app isn't very big yet and it takes around 5 to 10 minutes. When this happens, all the visual data gallery objects (data adapters, sql connections, datasets, etc) disappear on all the forms except the visible open form. It's like those forms time out and just don't load everything. I have to close VS and reopen it and then it opens just fine (in about 10-15 seconds with nothing lost.) Has anyone else seen this or heard of a fix? Thanks!...
