# RE: Possible bug: TortoiseProc.exe /command:update "skips" updating files after installing Tortoise 1.5

I think I found the problem. After updating to 1.5, using a relative path as argument to TortoiseProc.exe stopped working.

For me, this stopped working:
C:\inetpub\Studentum>C:\Progra~1\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseProc.exe /command:update /path:"ClassLibrary" /closeonend:3

While this still works:
C:\inetpub\Studentum>C:\Progra~1\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseProc.exe /command:update /path:"C:\inetpub\Studentum\ClassLibrary" /closeonend:3

The reason could maybe be that TortoiseProc.cpp set the current directory to temp-path in line 275 (http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/svn/tortoisesvn/trunk/src/TortoiseProc/TortoiseProc.cpp):

// Subversion sometimes writes temp files to the current directory!
// Since TSVN doesn't need a specific CWD anyway, we just set it
// to the users temp folder: that way, Subversion is guaranteed to
{
TCHAR pathbuf[MAX_PATH];
GetTempPath(MAX_PATH, pathbuf);
SetCurrentDirectory(pathbuf);
}

Being able to use a relative path is a nice feature for us since developers usually have their project-files on different drives or in different directories. We can solve the problem for now by adding some logic to the build-script but I think it's a quite easy fix if the above really is the problem.

If the update from the context menu works ok, then maybe you pass the path wrong?
Have you tried passing the path in quotes? For example:
TortoiseProc.exe /command:update /path:"c:\myworkingcopy\project"

The /notempfile flag for the 1.4.x version was needed because without that, it assumed that the paths to update were written to a temp text file, so the path you passed with /path:"" was pointing to that text file unless /notempfile was given.

One other thing:
Subversion sometimes tries to create temporary files in the current directory (known as CWD, but usually only used in a command line environment). Maybe it has something to do with the path from where you start TortoiseProc?
