h1. Specify sourcesafe command location

QuickBuild utilizes the sourcesafe command (normally ss.exe) to interact with SourceSafe database. If this command is not in system path, you will need to specify location of the command by configuring Visual SourceSafe plugin through [plugin management] page.
Further more, soucesafe command location can be specified on a per-node basis by following below steps:
# Open Visual SourceSafe plugin setting page and set the property _VSS Executable Path_ as:
# For each node that does not have sourcesafe command on system path, define the user attribute _vssPath_ to point to the actual sourcesafe command path like below:

In case of user agent node, the user attribute need to be defined [in this way|Manage User Agent#define user attributes].

Please note that in above example, the _ssExePath_ user attribute is just for demonstration purpose. You can use any other user attribute name.

h1. {anchor:limitations}Limitations

To use this repository, please be aware of below limitations:
# If label step is executed after checkout step, the labeled code might not be consistent with the checkout code since SourceSafe only supports create label on the head. To avoid this issue, please execute label step before checkout step.
# Due to SourceSafe command line tool limitation, changes are only calculated in the range of minutes. For example, if a build started at 13:30:05, and a second build started at 13:30:50, any changes committed during 13:30:05 and 13:30:50 will not be detected by the second build.
# If user name and password is not specified correctly, _ss.exe_ will hang and use 100% CPU. Upon this, the only way is to bring out task manager and kill _ss.exe process.
