It should be executing ss.exe, since this is the command line version of the
application.  ssexp.exe is just a GUI front-end.

Thanks Shannon, I'm closer but still not there. Am I wrong in observing that
vssget tries to execute ss.exe? Should it not be ssexp.exe?

Dana,

We're using code similar to the following:

...
rem setenv.bat - This part runs in a batch script.
rem
rem You seem to need to have this environment variable
rem set in order for VSS to find the database.
set ssdir=\\SERVER\path\to\vss_database

...
<!-- build.xml -->
<!-- Note that VSS calls everything a project, not a folder. -->
<vssget localpath="c:\path\to\local\vss\working\folder"
vsspath="\$/path/to/project/in/vss"
ssdir="c:\path\to\vss\executable"
recursive="true"/>

Thanks for the explanation. I'm having a problem with my vsspath. Part of
the problem is that VSS is on another computer on our network but I still
should be able to get to if I use the correct path statement. What is vssget
looking for? The notes make reference to a project, I usually just get the
latest version, do I have to create a project for vssget to work?

MSVSSGET is the name of the class that implements the vssget task.  (The
Defaults.properties (in src/org/apache/tools/ant/taskdefs) maps MSVSSGET to
vssget.

why when you get a listing of the optional.jar there is no vssget but there
is a MSVSSGET?
