Disabling Keyword Expansion ....

Disabling Keyword Expansion ....

Disabling Keyword Expansion ....

Hello All..

One of the project folders in our vss DB needs to have keyword expansion disabled.   Is there any easy way to disable a project and it's subfolders from expanding keywords in the file headers.  
Ex:   We have following lines in srcsafe.ini file to disable expansion for all files in project $/DoNotExpand/ and its subprojects

Keyword_Masks = !*.*

This works fine for all files in $/DoNotExpand, but any files checked into $/DoNotExpand/sub1/ and or any sub project under $/DoNotExpand/ have problems, the keyword expands.   The above lines do not work recursively to subprojects.  I have to explicitly include all subprojects in the ini file, which is impractical because there are many.

Any help is appreciated.  thank you.  --rr

RE: Disabling Keyword Expansion ....

I've not tried this but it might be worth adding

Keyword_Masks = !*.*

to the ini file?
