RE: SOLVED: Windows Vista issues

Sorry, I'm no subversion expert, only a humble user. I do know that if I do the exact same process for adding files to my repository on Windows XP, it works without issue. But If I use Vista, the last modified date for the file is null and for some reason svn has an issue with that when adding the files to the repository.

To recap what I do...

I download some files that I want to add to the repository (these files have a null modified date), then I use TortoiseSVN to add the files (I tried command line and had the same result about a bogus date). I have recently upgraded to 1.5, so I do not know if the problem still occurs.

That's about all the info I have time to offer, but it may be a clue if anybody else if having a bogus date issue (on Vista or elsewhere).

Not sure what you are referring to when you say "bogus date / times", or
how it relates to Vista. I don't think this will help anyone without
additional context (i.e. what were you doing? what did you expect to
see? what did you see?)
