In Windows 7 there is a new concept introduced for file storage and access called "Libraries". I have Tortoise installed on my Windows 7 RC machine, and when I am inside a library, the context menu does not include Tortoise's menu entries. If I want to show Tortoise's context menu entries, I have to navigate to the applicable folder via the file system, instead of being able to go through the Library.
For example (attached Picture1):
I have navigated into the "Documents" Library, and when I right-click, there are no TortoiseSVN entries in the menu. You can see in the screenshot that I have a folder checked out called SCIS, but I didn't do it through the Library; I had to find that directory in the file system (next example).
For another example (atached Picture2):
I have found the correct folder in the file system, and have navigated directly there via drive paths, etc. Now, when I right-click, I get the expected TortoiseSVN menu entries, and am able to check-out my code, etc.
I am using the Windows 7 RC, they are expected to RTM in August, or late summer, with Windows 7 hitting the shelves near Christmas. It would be great to have Tortoise working completely with all the new improvements in Windows 7 (including, but not limited to Libraries) by then!
