I'd suggest disabling the source control provider in the registry, by
hiding the key.

I have access to my client's VSS repo over a slow VPN link, and when I
first ran the VC6 IDE it wanted to connect to VSS for every subproject (AKA
directory), which took forever. There was no way to abort the process. I
renamed the source control registry key and VC6 skipped that and started
much more quickly. This essentially forces all "real" version control to
use the explicit ssexp.exe VSS IDE.
