Re: Commit failed ... Access is denied

Milen,

Thanks for the input.

server URL to AVSEC repository: svn://qpulse/avsec

SVN 1.5.5
TortoiseSVN 1.6.1 (or at least mine is - his might be 1.6.2 have to
check tomorrow).

So, should I have checked the repos out using the URL, not the mapped
drive?

Best regards,

Bodvar
