"Version not found" error message

"Version not found" error message

"Version not found" error message


We are running VSS 6 SP 5 on Windows 2000 Server (I verified that VSS database is in 6 format). When I do recursive GET by the label in VSS Explorer I am getting "version not found" errors for SOME of the sub-projects. These "problem" sub-projects give the error no matter which label is used. I can GET inidividual files from these sub-projects using the same label without a problem.
Analyze did not show any errors.
There is an article in MS Knowledge Base about "version not found" error but they say it happens when you use version 5 database with VSS 6 which is not the case with us.
Any help will be greatly appreciated

RE: "Version not found" error message


I have the idea you have not set the label on all the sub-projects you try to GET now.
Place a label on the highest possible project if you plan to do a recursive label GET in the future.
I hope this helps.
