I am using c# in vs 2008 and the Interop.SourceSafeTypeLib.dll for vss 6.0d.  I see methods for check-in and check-out files, but how do I do a "get latest version"?

Here is a class that I used to use with Visual SourceSafe (before Team Foundation Server).  It has been a long time, so I would consider it an untested class.




// Add a COM reference to Micro$oft SourceSafe type library. 

using System;
using SourceSafeTypeLib;
using System.IO;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class SourceSafe
{

    private VSSDatabase _database;
    private VSSItem _project;

    public event UpdateStatusEventHandler UpdateStatus;
    public delegate void UpdateStatusEventHandler(string text);
    public event GetFileEventHandler GetFile;
    public delegate void GetFileEventHandler(string name);


    public SourceSafe()
    {

        _database = new VSSDatabase();
        _database.Open("", "", "");

    }

    ~SourceSafe()
    {
        Marshal.ReleaseComObject(_database);
        _database = null;
    }


    public VSSItem Project
    {
        get { return _project; }
        set { _project = value; }
    }

    public void BuildProjectTree(TreeView treeProjects, string initialProject)
    {

        VSSItem rootProject = null;

        try
        {

            rootProject = _database.get_VSSItem("$/", false);
        }

        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
        }

        if (rootProject != null)
        {
            this.EnumerateProjects(rootProject, treeProjects, null, initialProject);
        }

    }

    public bool CheckIn(string fileName, string localPath, string fileComment, bool keepCheckout)
    {

        int flags = 0;

        if (keepCheckout)
        {
            // Check in the change, but keep the file checked Outlook 
            flags = flags | (int)VSSFlags.VSSFLAG_KEEPYES;
        }

        // Look for a checked-out file. 
        foreach (VSSItem itemCurrent in this.Project.get_Items(false))
        {

            if (itemCurrent.Name == fileName)
            {

                if (itemCurrent.Checkouts.Count > 0)
                {

                    // Check in the file with the chosen flags, and 
                    // give the check out the specified comment. If 
                    // the local path is not blank, then override the 
                    // default working path for the project. 
                    itemCurrent.Checkin(fileComment, localPath, 0);

                    // File found. 
                    return true;
                }

            }

        }
        return false;
    }

    {
        int flags = 0;

        if (!getLocal)
        {
            // Don't get local copy, but still check the file Outlook 
            flags = flags | (int)VSSFlags.VSSFLAG_GETNO;
        }

        if (recurseSubProjects)
        {
            // Check out files in sub projects. 
            flags = flags | (int)VSSFlags.VSSFLAG_RECURSYES;
        }

        // Search for the file name to check Outlook 
        foreach (VSSItem itemCurrent in this.Project.get_Items(false))

            }

        }

        return false;

    {

                newNode.Tag = itemCurrent.Spec;
