Subject RE: VSSGET and labelling...
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2001 09:28:49 GMT
I've seen this too.  Its unfortunately Source Safe that is the problem.  

Basically, if I had the $/com/syntegra tree labelled to 1.3 and not the root
$/com, when I tried to check
out from source safe with the 1.3 label on the root, it doesn't know of any
1.3 label.  From past
experience, CVS was much better at this and recursed through until it found
the label.

If you have items in the $/MKTG that are labelled up as 2.0 but not the
actual root $/MKTG then it
will never find those changed files.  In Source Safe, labels recurse
downwards.  If the root is unaware
of the label then you will get this error.

Your choices are to either perform branching and pinning of the Source Safe
tree for that version or version the root.  
This involves creating a new tree just for 2.0.
