Is there a way to automatically get a Visual C++ Project out of Visual Source Safe ( with its dependent projects ), then to start a buildprocess autmatically.
It has to run e.g. in the night in batch on a NT Server. Any prototypes? Working examples?

First u need a MakeFile (Project/Export Makefile in VC++5/6)
Add it to SourceSafe.
Get all the project files with command line of SS:
    SS Get $/<project path> (and some parameters see SS help)
Build the project with
    NMAKE <makefile> CFG="<config>"

O.k. but there's still a manual step: I have to create the makefile manually. It has to be in batch!!!!! What if the makefile in Sourcesafe is not updated by a developer but the only .dsp or the .dsp?

Instead of NMAKE + makefile u can use MSDEV + .dsp, see MSDEV cmd line parms
