RE: Windows 8 Tortoise SVN --- missing green check marks

This is a svn mailing list, not a tortoise list. What is the difference?

Svn is the product. Works great, has an 1980's era interface. Cumbersome to use. Has great support and a manual.
Tortoise is a wrapper for svn. It is a modern interface that does not keep up with the operating systems it runs on nor does it allow all the capabilities of svn.

Tortoise doesn't display the check marks on windows 7 either. Tortoise is a great concept, providing a modern interface for a powerful tool, however, it is not being kept up to date as it should.

You have two choices:

1) Use svn "as-is" and gets all its power but be ready to do a lot of typing.

2) Use tortoise and get a modern interface that is lacking.

Subject: Windows 8 Tortoise SVN --- missing green check marks


I am new to using SVN for sw-dev, so if I am doing something silly or posting in the wrong place, please say so kindly...

I have just installed Tortoise SVN on a Windows 8 machine, to be used for Unity and Oculus development.

I checked out the SVN of the company I have just joined into a local folder on my PC to work on.

I understand every file/directory in a working copy should have a green check mark in its bottom left corner, indicating that it is unchanged from the version in the repository.

But none of my checked out files/folders in my working copy directory has that. Is it normal in Win 8 or have I done something wrong here?

Thank you,
