RE: Can't get pathfile to work when performing update command via TortoiseProc

Thanks for the info. I have tried both Big and Little Endian UTF-16 files
and each time I try the popup for the UI appears and says "Skipped".

My pathfile just contains the path to one of my SVN repositories with
double-quotes around the whole thing.

Below is the screenshot I get and both files attached.

Any help much appreciated – we use SVN at work and work on multiple
projects, I currently have a Windows scheduled task for each one but a file
would be much easier to maintain.

I think NTFS stores filenames in UTF-16, that might be the reason.
