Is automatic "get latest version" possible in DevStudio 6 connected to Visual SourceSafe?

I have several projects in my DevStudio workspace that all share the same source file via VSS. Every time I make a change in the shared file and chek it in from in one of the projects, I have to go through all the other projects one at a time and do a "Get latest version" for these other projects to reflect the latest change.  What I want to do is something similar to "Batch Build", but for getting the latest versions, i.e. with one or two clicks I want to have all the projects update all the source files (from withing DevStudio). Can this be done?

Thanks, AlexFM

I tried to do a simple task of connecting to the VSS archive by typing

ss Project

Although I specified my VSS username through Control Panel -> System -> Env vars,
it still asked me for it and then complained that it could not find my username. Trying upper/lower cases did not help. Other people in my group also had the same luck. At the same time, VSS is functioning properly when executed via GUI. Do you know what may be wrong?
