When you use Microsoft Visual SourceSafe OLE Automation to check out a project object with the recursive flag set, all files are checked out recursively. However, the local files for any subprojects will not be on the local computer.


The files in the subprojects are copied only to the working directory if the VSSFLAG_FORCEDIRYES flag is set.

This flag is a parameter of the VSSITEM.Checkout command.


When you check out the project recursively by using OLE Automation, use the VSSFLAG_FORCEDIRYES flag.
