"Error reading from file" "the sourcesafe database has been locked by the administrator" in visual source safe

Source: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;153501

At the command prompt, type:

analyze -f <path to data folder>

After running this i got another error “the sourcesafe database has been locked by the administrator”

To solve this look in the data\loggedin directory for *.lck files. Your bigger problem is that your database is probably corrupted at this point. Delete the .lck file and then see if you can open the database
