Re: The system cannot find the file specified.

Hi again,

I used the command line interface of svn and it returned the same error, i
have no read only files in the working copy, i cant even get a full working
copy infact. This computer runs sophos antivirus, this is now disabled.
Note that the paths are different as i moved the repository to my temp
drive, nothing else has changed.

Here is the details of what i ran:

c:\>svn checkout svn://localhost/ c:\out

It returns the following;
//for simplicity i have cut just above the error (there are hundreds of
//files)

A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\Overview.vsd
A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\penlanlan.vsd
A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\sdhlan.vsd
A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\Questionnaire v0.7.doc

A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\Users.pdf
A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\ITMgmt.pdf
A C:\out\Access to Network\Vega IHC Questionnaire\wghlan.vsd
svn: In directory 'C:\out\Access to Network'

Networking qu
ick wins & Remediation.xls.svn-base' to 'C:\out\Access to Network\Fund-
Networki
ng quick wins & Remediation.xls.tmp': The system cannot find the file
specified.

If i try and update this incomplete copy with;
C:\>svn update svn://localhost/ c:\out

It returns the following:

Assertion failed: is_canonical (base, blen), file
D:\svnbuild\src-1.2.0-rc1\subv
ersion\libsvn_subr\path.c, line 114

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Other repositories work fine, so i cannot see that this issues is based
with my installation of subversion.

Thanks for the help,

Nicholas.

Quick things to check:
1. make absolutely sure you don't have any read-only files in your
working copy
2. try disabling any anti-virus on-access scanning

If neither of those work run the same checkout with the official command
line client, e.g.
   svn checkout svn://server/repository/
If reports the same error then post back to this list with a detailed
transcript of the commands you ran.
If the command line *does* work then make sure you're using the latest
TortoiseSVN. If the latest TortoiseSVN still has the problem then post
your problem to the TortoiseSVN list.

HTH,

-Nathan
