There are no command line equivalents for "Create Site Map" or "Check Hyperlinks". These features are only available through the Web menu in the Visual SourceSafe Explorer after you have designated a project as a Web Project.

Deploy is the only command available in both the Visual SourceSafe Explorer and the Command Line.


ss Deploy Project Path

You must have the Read access right to use this command.


To specify a project as a Web Project in Visual SourceSafe, do the following:

  1. From the SourceSafe Administrator, select Tools and then Options.
  2. Click the Web Projects tab. This tab contains five text fields. The first field (called "This Project Represents a Web Site") and either or both of the next two fields (called "URL" and "Virtual Root") must be filled in before you can designate a project as a Web Project.

NOTE: For more information on how to designate a project as a Web Project, see page 173 of the User's Guide for Visual SourceSafe 5.0.

  1. After you have specified a project as a Web project from within the Administrator, restart the Visual SourceSafe Explorer. Now you will see the Web glyph on the project you designated as a Web project.
  2. Select the project. The Deploy, Check Hyperlinks, and Create Site Map commands are now active in the Web menu.
