SourceSafe and the command to get the source

Hi all,

I am using Teamcity Professionnal 5.1.2 and I tried several times to use sourcesafe with no success : it fails using this command :

"C:\Programmi\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe\ss.exe" Get $/super/ -R -Vd01/10/2010;95515 -Y*****,***** -I-Y -W -GF- -GTM -GWR

I have tried this command line and it did not work. But when I modified it a bit to get for instance this :

"C:\Programmi\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe\ss.exe" Get $/super/ -R -Vd01/10/2010;09:56:00 -Y*****,***** -I-Y -W -GF- -GTM -GWR

It worked like a charm.

My question is : How can I can modify Teamcity so that it doesn't take its source like it does but like my second option ?

Thx for your support,

Please try changing locale to EN-US for TeamCity server running user account. That should help!
Do not forget to reboot/log off and log on after changing it to make change apply.
