Re: VSS to SVN: Is there a script to do this????

How odd. This seems to suggest that you don't have the VSS typelib or
perhaps COM objects installed. I too am running ver 6.0c (build 9447).
If the version were off I could see how it would perhaps not work since
I have the type lib GUID hard-coded in the script. It sounds like you do
have the same version though. Do you have a different build #?
