Subject RE: Problem with vsspath in vssget task
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2002 08:19:39 GMT
I am also using ANT 1.4.1 with Visual SourceSafe 6.0, and in my vssget
tasks I also specify
serverPath=C:/theStandardVssLocation/VSS which points to my srcsafe.ini

Hopefully if you add this attribute to your vssget tasks it will solve
your problem :)

Subject: Problem with vsspath in vssget task

 To All,          I am attempting to use ANT 1.4.1 with Visual
SourceSafe 6.0 for the first time. Within SourceSafe I have created a
project, let's call it "Proj1". Directly through the SourceSafe GUI, I
am able to extract all of the code from the directory to a local
directory. Unfortunately, if I attempt the same functionality through
ANT, I get an error stating that "Proj1" does not exist. The ANT
variable, vsspath is used to set the project.           The following is
an example:             &lt;vssget
localPath="&lt;aLocalDir&gt;"                login="&lt;validUsername,
validPassword&gt;"                recursive="true"
writable="true" /&gt;            Unfortunately, I always get an error
stating that the build has failed because $/Proj1 is not an existing
filename or project.            I am lost because this project does
exist in sourcesafe???            I would appreciate any help. Thanks,
