Removing VSS Integration out Visual Studio

After searching for quite some time I found how to remove VSS integration from VS in the google cache. I only did steps 1, 2, and 4 and it worked for me.

1. Clear the read-only attribute from all files

2. Delete all source safe files (*.scc, *.vspcc, and *.vssscc)

3. Edit each solution file (*.sln) and remove the section starting with

GlobalSection(SourceSafeControl) =3D preSolution
and ending with

4. Edit each project file (*.csproj or *.vbproj) and remove the four
lines that begin with "Scc"

5. Edit each setup project file (*.vdproj) and remove each line that
begins with "Scc"
