Re: Problem with Tortoise on Vista

Hi Stefan,

Thank you very much for replying me. I'm sorry that i'm not in mailing list.

let me tell you what exactly I did. I have installed the version# on my office laptop and that is working very fine. after that I purchased my own laptop but at the time of installing the SVN I selected the option of ASP heck (I dont know what is the use of that), I selected that option just to know more about it.

Now I have installed the latest version of it and have given the access rights as you have suggested and try to get the fresh checkout, but my bad I'm still getting the same error.

Please suggest me what should i do now.

Why would you install such an ancient version?

That means you not only installed an ancient version but also an
unsupported one (the one with the ASP hack).

Just some pointers where you could get more info.

I don't have a new laptop (yet), but I have a Vista partition on my old
laptop (very, very slow, but it works to test some Vista specific
problems with TSVN). One thing I noticed is that if I try accessing a
working copy from another partition (i.e., my XP partition), it wouldn't
work - always getting "access denied" errors.
One way to solve this:
* select the folder
* right-click, choose "properties"
* go to the access rights (don't know the exact way to get there - I
don't want to reboot into Vista just to find out)
* add your Vista username as users who are allowed to access
(read/write/change/...) the folder.
* apply the changes recursively
* have a cup of coffe or two - this can take a while

But the best way (and I might even say faster way) is to get a fresh

Your working copies won't change. Only new working copies will have the
new setting applied.
