Tonya,
We would be content with a supported 64-bit version of the Vault client API. In some ways it might be easier, since going through MSSCCI hides some of the information available in the Vault.
Thanks,
David

I will make sure to pass this along. As of right now, we still don't have an update to provide but I will definitely flag this has a higher priority.

Thanks,

Tonya

David, did you check whether the Vault client API assemblies currently support 64bit or not? - I think there is a chance they do already.

How would I find out if the Vault client API assemblies currently support 64bit?

I would create a small 64bit application an try to load the Vault client API into that process and use it from there. - Of course, the basic fact that it is possible to load the assemblies and some of the functionality works is no guarantee that all of it will work. Nonetheless, if you get this far, there is a reasonable chance that the client libraries fully support 64bit.

The easier solution would be if Sourcegear support would just explicitly confirm or deny 64bit support. ;-)

Plans to support 64-bit for the client API will be available in Vault 11 as well. It is likely that we will provide an early build for the 64-bit MSSCCI and the API Client for customers with maintenance. I will confirm when this is available.

Thanks, PhilS. It seems that the API can be used from a 64-bit application (such as a VS 2022 Extension).
I have only tested
  • ServerOperations.SetLoginOptions, Login, Logout, ProcessCommandGetUsers, ProcessCommandListFolder, ProcessCommandListObjectProperties
  • GetOperations.ProcessCommandGet
but so far everything has worked.

This confirms my own, very cursory testing with a 64bit console application.
Thank you for the confirmation.
Unfortunately, for us using the Vault client API directly is theoretically possible, but the effort for adapting to that approach seems not to be economically viable.
@Tonya, I'm very much looking forward to a 64bit implementation of the MSSCCI-API.

I see there have not been any updates on this since October 2022. We are one of the customers that Philipp was referring to. We have several very large MS Access applications that we want to move to 64 bit but the lack of a source code control system with a 64 bit MSSCCI plugin that we can use to replace Visual SourceSafe has stymied us. For the short term we have started working on modifying our code to work with both 32 and 64 bit but keeping everything checked in on the 32 bit side but we won't consider the project done until everything is in the 64 bit world. Last I heard was that the long-delayed Vault 11 would be out sometime in 2024 and that the MSSCCI component would likely be included but knowing exactly when (or a general swag) would be useful in our planning for the year. Thank you...

Thank you for reaching out. Vault 11 is currently underway and this feature is being considered. I don't have complete confirmation if it will make the release. I will make sure to update this post when I know more.

Is there anything The Boeing Company could do to encourage you to include this feature? Vault will not work for us without it. I can try and contact our people who handle procurement if you think that would help any.

Thank you for validating how important this feature is to your dev team.

The most recent update, we are going to attempt to get this feature in Vault 11. We'll know more at the end of the month. If it's possible to implement this feature in our next release, we can provide you with an early preview for you to test if you'd like.

Thanks again,

Tonya
