Visual-studio – Subversion: Tortoise+AnkhSVN


Open Ankh seems to be using Subversion 1.6.2 and Tortoise uses Subversion 1.6.0.

After creating a repository with Tortoise I could not get ankh to see it.

After downloading subversion and doing
svn admin -create –pre-1.6-compatible z:\……\etc..
now ankh can see it. This is my first time using version control, and maybe I don't need tortoise, but the windows explorer integration sounds nice.

I'm using file:/// not an svnserve or apache.

am I going to be able to use tortoise along side ankh or will I continue to have problems or possibly corrupt the repository?

Best Solution

As long as both tools are on the same major/minor version of Subversion (i.e. 1.6.any) then they should be able to work together.

Are you talking about AnkhSVN? If so, you might need to get a daily build, as their page mentions using the latest daily for Subversion 1.6 support.

If you update one client but not another and there is a minor version difference (i.e. 1.6 vs. 1.5), then the newer client will update the working copy and you won't be able to work with it in the older client.
