Sourcesafe 2005, Get Latest - Make Writable box is in the indeterminate state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    A question for one of the yesterdays versions of VSS.

    When doing a "get latest", and checking Recursive, the Make Writable option appears - and the state of the check box is the "third state". It is not checked and not cleared, but dimmed. 

    Question: Does anybody know why this third state exist for this particular option? Which files are set as writable if I leave the option unchanged?

    (yes, I could try and see for myself, but there should be some theory behind this - right?)

    Answers are much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  • Since you "get latest" contains the folders, the folder does not have the writable attribute. If you want to make all files writable under "get latest" and checking "recursive", you could check the "writable " box to checked status:
