VSS Add Operation
Hello together,

I tried to use the VSS Add funtionality of VBP, but it does not work. All other VSS operations like Get Checkout CheckIn... work properly, but I have serious problems adding new files to VSS via CommandLine, too.

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe\ss.exe" Add $/1500/PC_KUNDE/KKH/DBINCL C:\pcdps1500\KKH\DBINCL1\a1000tst.h -Yvb,vb1991 -W -C"Added by VB User"

I already consulted another forum, but no responses the last week. The MSDN help could not help, too.

Path to VSS executable:
c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe\ss.exe

The Add statement with path where to add in VSS:

The path for the local file:

The rest is not important I think. Is the usage correct?
Thats the result of the VBP output window:

Failed to create process: The directory name is invalid.

What directory name is meant by it? The local one or the VSS path?

The 'Path for local files' field must be a path, not a filename. Filename(s), folder(s), or mask(s) are specified in the 'Projects and/or files to process' field. The SourceSafe.bld sample demonstrates adding files.

Hi all,

the problem is, that You have to Set CP Path and CP Source before You can use the Add command of VSS ;)
