Schiott_SourceReport requires Visual SourceSafe to be pre-installed. If you already have the Visual Basic 6.0 runtime, just download the executable.
Schiott_SourceReport is a tool for extracting comments from a SourceSafe database. Schiott_SourceReport displays the Visual SourceSafe in a tree structure. By selecting a folder (project) from the tree view, you can collect comments from all files in the current folder and its subfolders. Schiott_SourceReport will create a simple text file containing comments from a given date.
You can also ask for comments on files between two labels or files that are different from those on your hard disk.
How to get started:
- Install the program.
- Start the program.
- The program will try to log on to your default SourceSafe database.
If it fails, a logon screen will appear. Point to your scrsafe.ini file. If you normally logon to VSS without providing a username and password, it should be sufficient to point to your srcsafe.ini file and click OK. Otherwise, you must provide a username and password too.
Once you can see your VSS tree structure:
- Make a selection in the tree view.
- Enter a valid filename for the log file.
- Choose a date.
- Hit the Printer button. If it doesn't start, do it again (focus bug in the calendar control).
I’ll be back with explanations of the other features.
