RE: can't open Visual Studio .NET project under Subversion control???

I just found this in the source code:

./include/svn_wc.h:#define SVN_WC_ADM_DIR_NAME ".svn"

So, perhaps if I can figure out how to build Subversion, I can redefine this
macro (perhaps "_svn")
as part of the build flags and see if that fixes the problem I'm having with
Visual Studio .NET
(although I'm not sure if/how I can build Subversion with Visual Studio .NET
because of this problem).

Then I'd be stuck with using the command line tools unless I started
rebuilding the GUI client tools too.

Subject: can't open Visual Studio .NET project under Subversion control???

Whenever I try to open a Subversion project with Visual Studio .NET,
I get a warning message:

Refreshing the project failed. Unable to retrieve folder information from
the server.

Sometimes the project still opens; but, frequently I get a separate error
telling me that the web folder http://localhost/WebApplication1 does not
to the file c:/inetpub/wwwroot/WebApplication1 (or the share

The posting from microsoft.public.vsnet.general which I saw on google groups
explains this
problem in a little bit more detail:


Can anyone shed any light on this problem? Why can we create a ".svn"
subdirectory within the command window but not in Windows explorer?
Is Visual Studio .NET broken? Is there any way to either
a) Get MS to recognize and fix this problem in a timely fashion or
b) Get Subversion to work-around this and choose a different subdirectory
