As others have pointed out - perhaps if you explain what the basis of the 
management decision was rather than the implementation of that decision - 
people could help you.  I really doubt your CEO wants your developers to use 
VSS - instead the CEO probably wants 'reserved' workflow (to prevent conflicts 
or ensure only one developer works on a file at a time) or wants improved 
productivity (with integration into the developer tools like Visual Studio).

CVSNT is the only open source version control system that I know of that 
supports both integration with Visual Studio (using CVS Suite or other 'free' 
integrations) and also supports the VSS workflow (with genuine reserved 
revisions).  CVSNT is open source and is an easy 'upgrade' from CVS and also 
supports access control, active directory integration, failsafe audit etc etc.  

Please send questions about CVSNT to the CVSNT newsgroup.

I am working in .Net project where we are using CVS to store our project 
repository. Right now based on few managerial decisions we want to use VSS in 
place of CVS. Can you please let me know the approach for getting the entire 
version of all individual files in the repository from CVS to VSS. i.e I am 
interested in migrating entire project repository to VSS with out missing the 
existing versions and tags. I hope I can get the solution from you people.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks and Regards,
