RE: Downloading SVN command-line client binaries for Windows

If you are looking for the client, you want TortoiseSVN.the ones you listed
below are the SVN Server products. I believe tortoise also has command line
options, but I am not sure. I am also sure there are other clients besides
tortoise.it's just the only one that I have used.

 

1-4 will allow you to dl the server.I have dl'd from all of those sources.
#5 is for Visual studio use and I have never attempted to dl that sine I
don't use VisualStudio..so can't help on that *grin*

Hi.

This is what I was looking for: SVN command-line Windows binaries. I didn't
want to change my computer's configuration, so I wanted something I could
extract from an archive, and not some setup tool.

I went to http://subversion.tigris.org/ and clicked Windows binaries. I was
given 5 options:

1) CollabNet (Certified binaries)
2) Tigris.org: Apache 2.0
3) Tigris.org: Apache 2.2
4) SlikSVN: 32 and 64 bit client MSI
5) VisualSVN (VisualSVN Server)

So, I wanted a client, which in my mind would rule out 2), 3) and 5). I
tried 1), but I was not allowed to download anything from there. It seems I
have to become a customer of theirs to download, and I certainly did not
want to do that.

Then I tried to find something on Google without any luck.

I tried option 4), where I extracted the msi with 7zip. It contained a cab
file, which I extracted with WinRAR. That contained some files, which
sounded right, but when I tried using it, it complained about a missing dll,
and I could not find out what to do about that.

Then, even through I looked for a client and not a server, I clicked on
option 3). I then found a list with a lot of unrelated stuff, but in the
end, there was a zip. It worked!

All in all, I used almost an hour to find a download for SVN. Would it be
possible to make it easier to find? I find it very counter-intuitive, that I
have to click a link saying *Apache*, when I want a *client*.

If you want to reply to me, you can do so at

But plase do not put my email address in some public mail list archive in an
unencoded form. Use Bcc.

Thanks

can unzip it anywhere and run them.
