[Subclipse-dev] Re: [PATCH]: "Cannot use javahl nor command line svn client" in vista windows w/ command line interface

hi jon, the bug is that svnant strips out all environment variables and
then adds back in a proscribed list. that list does not include
"SystemDrive". and because svn.exe on vista requires that variable, the
output is an error message instead of what svnant was expecting. so,
even though you have SystemDrive set in your environment, it will get
stripped out by svnant.

one work around is to use the dll. for us, we used the downloaded
"libsvnjavahl-1.dll" found in the eclipse plug-ins directory.

Help -> Software Updates -> Find and Install... -> Search for new
features to install -> New Remote Site...
Name: Subclipse 1.2.x (Eclipse 3.2+)
URL: http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.2.x

then set your path to point at the dll:
[eclipse directory]\plugins\org.tigris.subversion.javahl.win32_1.2.2

hope that helps,
jlg

Subject: [Subclipse-dev] [PATCH]: "Cannot use javahl nor command line
svn client" in

i'm seeing the same problem - i get the error message only under VISTA,
not under Windows Server 2003, when using ANT to try to do simple svn
operations.

you write 'it turns out that under vista, svn.exe dies if you do not set
the "SystemDrive" environment variable.'

however, I have %SystemDrive% set (in my Vista environment, to "C:") -
but i'm still getting this error. Is there something I'm missing?
does the ant need an environment variable set also?

please help - i'm stuck! are there any other work arounds for this?
