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;

    }



    public bool CheckOut(string fileName, string localPath, string fileComment, bool getLocal, bool recurseSubProjects)

    {

        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))

        {



            if (itemCurrent.Name == fileName)

            {

                    // the local path is not blank, then override the 

                    // default working path for the project. 

                    itemCurrent.Checkout(fileComment, localPath, flags);

            }



        }

        return false;



    }



    private void EnumerateProjects(VSSItem project, TreeView treeDisplay, TreeNode parentNode, string initialProject)

    {

        foreach (VSSItem itemCurrent in project.get_Items(false))

        {

                if (parentNode == null)

                {

                    newNode = treeDisplay.Nodes.Add(itemCurrent.Name);

                }

                else

                }



                newNode.Tag = itemCurrent.Spec;



                if (itemCurrent.Spec.Equals(initialProject))
