Retreive files from a date

Retreive files from a date

Retreive files from a date

I use VSS version 8 with Visual Studio 2005.
I have a VSS projet with no label and I need to getting it for a particular date.
Is it possible to do that without getting each file one by one by hand?

RE: Retreive files from a date

I have found the solution. I must use the SourceSafe command line command (ss.exe).

In DOS prompt:
CD [directory to extract the files]
SET SSDIR=[source safe database path]
SET SSUSER=[source safe user]
SET SSPWD=[source safe user's password]
ss GET $/[path project] -R -I-Y -Vd[date]

-R: recursive folder
-I-Y: answers to all Yes/No questions
-Vd[date]: indicate the projet version (date)

SourceSafe reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/361xt7bh(VS.80).aspx
