SourceSafe Action Options Tab

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This tab of the SourceSafe action configures additional options.


Use long filename mode: If checked, all files are operated on using their long filenames.  If unchecked, short filenames are used (not recommended).


Comment to apply: Specifies a comment to be applied to the operation and stored in the database for that version/label.


Additional command-line options: Use this field to enter any additional ss.exe command-line options to be added to the call that is constructed.  Use this to supply flags that are not explicitly supported via the action fields (see the VSS help for details on the available command-line flags).


Specify the ss.exe executable filename: If not specified, the action locates ss.exe by looking for the default registry value under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{783CD4E4-9D54-11CF-B8EE-00608CC9A71F}\InprocServer32 and combines its path and ss.exe (re-registering ssapi.dll in the Visual Studio/SourceSafe installation path will reinitialize this value).  If the action is unable to locate the ss.exe command-line tool or multiple versions are installed, check the checkbox above this field and enter the full drive+path+filename to ss.exe here.
