Error message: Version not found.

 

Symptoms

When you get or check out an item in SourceAnywhere for VSS, you may get the error:
Version not found.

Cause

The possible cause is that the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database is corrupted.

Resolution

Run the VSS Analyze tool to check the integrity of the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) DB. Please make sure to backup the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database before running the tool.

Please note that VSS 6.0d (build 31222) or above is recommended to work with SourceAnywhere for VSS.

Note: You may not get the error when working on the same item from VSS. The cause is that SourceAnywhere for VSS uses VSS API to access VSS database, while VSS uses a different way.
