# Need help with VSS 5.0 recursive diff command line

Posted on 2009-05-19

VSS 5.0 is installed on my C: drive at C:\DevStudio\Vss\Win32\ss.exe
My project files are located on my D: drive at D:\WebSites\MyProject

I opened a command window, changed the directory to C:\DevStudio\Vss\Win32 and ran the following command:

ss diff -r "$/My Project/Web Site" D:\WebSites\MyProject It just says "D:\WebSites\MyProject" not found. If I try it without the folder location, it compares the project to the files in C:\DevStudio\Vss\Win32. Can someone help me with this?

I finally figured it out from this link after searching on ssdir: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssourcecontrol/thread/d645fa9f-7726-445c-b2ef-b0f023f8c7fb

set path=%path%;c:\path\to\vss
set ssdir=c:\path\to\database
ss cp \$/path/to/project
ss [command]

The key is to run this from the working folder. In my case, I needed to do this:

cd /d D:\WebSites\MyProject
ss diff -r
