Re: Problem with file permissions using TortoiseSVN

Many thanks for you help in looking into my problem, Will! I think
that I just found the problem, or the feature I guess it was. I had
installed the PushOK SVN SCC plug-in to be able to use the
check-in/out functions in LabView. And this program was making all
files read-only. I just uninstalled the program and now everything
works as it is supposed.
