VBP for Source Safe Diff between Labels

Greetings All,
I'm trying to use VBP to do a Source Safe diff between two different versions of the same source safe file (say Label1 and Label2 of file test.c). With the VBP SourceSafe Diff options I only see the ability to do a diff between a single Source Safe version and a file on my own server, not between two SS versions. Is there a way to do this that I've missed??

Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can lend!

As far as I can see there is no way of using the command line interface to VSS to compare files between two projects.

Same problem. Have a look in the VSS help in the "Reference Guide + Using the VSS Command Line + Difference + .." sections.

About your only option is to get one of the files to disk (using -V to specify a labeled version as required) then use the diff command to compare it with the VSS version.
