Get Latest Version Not Working

Get Latest Version Not Working

Get Latest Version Not Working

I have a web project using visual source safe and source control.  The application and ss are on the same server.  When I go get the latest version of a file my local copy is NOT the latest.  Both ss and the server have the latest and greatest, just my local copy is not the latest.  When I check out the file I do get the latest and greatest file.  Anyone have any ideas.  Thank you for your help!

RE: Get Latest Version Not Working

If there is already a copy of the file in your working folder, SSAFE will not necessarily replace it.

Using the Get Latest Version command has four possible outcomes:

When the file you are retrieving is not already in your working folder, VSS simply gets the file.

When the file in your working folder is identical to the file you are retrieving, VSS does not retrieve or modify the file in any way.

When the file in your working folder is different from the VSS master copy, and your local copy is read-only, VSS replaces your local copy.

When the file in your working folder is not read-only, VSS assumes that you have the file checked out, and doesn't replace the file. You can change the way VSS behaves in this case with the Replace Writable option in the Local Files tab of the Options dialog box.

Thank you.

That seems to be working.  One other thing.  When I check I file out in ss I would expect to see it checked out to c:\....  This is not what I see when I look in ss.  SS shows the file as being checked out to the set of asp's I have registered as the application.  Is this correct?
