RE: [TSVN] Commiting multiple folders at once[Scanned]

What do you mean by deselecting a file I don't want to commit? is that in the TSVN commit dialog, or in the search window?
I'd love to get these three things in one folder, but I can't see a way.. ASP.NET demands my code is in a IIS folder, so by metadata and smart client stuff would have to be too.

        Yes, we don't like it when someone tries to trick us ;)

        Depends on what you think is a bug:
        TSVN knows that you've selected all the files in the commit dialog, so
        to speed things up and to work around many bugs in Subversion with
        non-recursive commits it tries to commit the parent folder of all the
        selected files (which, usually, _is_ a working copy. It usually is the
        working copy root). But in your case, the 'parent folder' of those three
        folders is C:\ (the common root). And that's not a working copy. That's
        why you get that error.
        Workaround: change a file you _don't_ want to commit and deselect that
        from being committed. Then it should work. Unless of course you hit one
        of the Subversion glitches with non-recursive commits.
