-W Option (Command Line)
Indicates if working copies are to be read/write or read-only. By default, when a file is not checked out, Visual SourceSafe makes your working copy read-only to remind you that it should not be altered. The Use_ReadOnly initialization variable in Ss.ini changes this default behavior.
