RE: Re: can't open .svn\tmp\tempfile.tmp: access is denied

I found this problem today; after trying several work arounds I managed to get a successful commitment by creating an exception in my virus scanner.

I cannot disable my virus scanner as part of the IT system at my office forbids it but it does allow me to create exceptions. From within McAfee I created an exception so that the On-Access scanner does not scan any files within the root working directories .svn\ folder when they are either written or read. Before this change I could commit a handful of files successfully but not any complex directory structures. After this change I have managed to commit over 5000 files in a directory structure with at least 5 levels to it.

I had seen the same problem as a few others where parts of the .svn directory structure became read only after attempting to commit. At a guess this is a result of the virus scanner interrupting Tortoise SVN before it finishes and returns the directory to read only. (I am using version 1.5.5 r14063)

Hope this helps some of you;
