This article was previously published under Q254494


Analyze.exe -F causes the following inconsistency error message if the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database contains 10 multibyte character set (MBCS) files with the same first eight text bytes and, if there is a long file name with the first eight bytes that are the same text in the database, the name is changed after Analyze.exe -F:

Analyze Visual SourceSafe Version 6.0 (Build 8383)
Database analysis in progress @ 99/03/17;16:27.
Creating a new nameset, or long filename information, for the file <TESTABCDEFGHIJKL>
Creating a new nameset, or long filename information, for the file <TEST9>.txt.
Analysis complete @ 99/03/17;16:27
Potentially serious errors or inconsistencies were found.

In the VSS Explorer, open the database and the file name "<TESTABCDEFGHIJKLMN>.txt" is changed to "<TESTABCDEFGHIJKL>."
