When you are attempting to deploy a labeled version of a SourceSafe web project, use of ss deploy returns "Version not found" and does not deploy the files.
Use the ss get command with the -gl (to specify the deployment path) and -vl (to specify the labeled version) switches to deploy to a drive or UNC path. For example:
ss get $/"<project name>" -vl"<test label>" -gl"<deployment path>"
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
Steps to Reproduce Behavior
- Create a project named Projecta in Visual SourceSafe.
- Add files to the project.
- Use the Admin utility to designate Projecta as a Web project (go to the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Web Projects tab) and set the deployment path to C:\test.
- Add a label "testlabel" to Projecta.
- From the Vss/Win32 folder run the command line:
ss deploy $/Projecta -vltestlabel
