I just started using your SSGET task today, and it's working well for me.  I
have a couple of comments for you.

- I made a modification to the setVsspath to wrap the entire path in
strings. This allows access to projects with spaces in their names to be
- Would it be possible to take a SSDIR style parameter and when you do the
exec do something like 'set SSDIR=mySSDIR; ss Get ..<snip>..'. This would
allow people to access multiple SS repositories without having to play with
environment variables
- While it is reasonable to expect people to have ss.exe in the path, why
not make it an optional attribute with a default of ss.exe (which will just
look in the path for it). Then people can override it and specify the full
- Do you have any understanding of the -O option? The VSS documentation is
very sparse, but if this could be used to tone down the output that would be

Overall a great job! My build process can now be 100% fully automated from
sourcecode acquisition to test harness running! Cheers!
