Hi, if you are new to Visual SourceSafe (VSS), I strongly suggest you read this Visual SourceSafe (VSS) tutorial written by Kevin Gao.

Great job of compiling that tutorial. Our company are currently looking for good applications with this type of outstanding support. Are guided help for the Browser-Based TWAIN Scanning SDK included as well? Or perhaps do you have any more tutorials you can show me?

Thanks,
Carl
