SVN plugin, part 3 (the last one)

The last two blog posts were about the SVN plugin for Visual Studio from the CodePlex page: http://tsvnaddin.codeplex.com/.

I did not try to get it running at work, but I took it for a spin for some at home. The plugin did it's job, but I stumbled upon some problems which made me use the good old Tortoise SVN client.

First of all if want to update or commit the files you've changed in the project/solution you only get the csproj/sln file to update -> this was a major issue for me.

A second issue is that the splash screen cannot be removed on x64 systems. I had no problems running it on my x86 laptop, but on my Windows 7 x64 laptop I couldn't get rid of that screen.

The last problem appeared when trying to remove the plugin... it just wouldn't let me remove it at all. I posted a solution on the project page on CodePlex: http://tsvnaddin.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=79343.

To conclude, I have to say that the project is in it's beta state so the problems I encountered will probably be solved in the future and the good work of integrating SVN into Visual Studio should continue :)

With this post I end my thread on this Visual Studio SVN plugin. I will come back with further information when a new (maybe a stable) version of the plugin will be available.

Have a good night, Arthur

SVN plugin, part 2

The SVN plugin didn't really integrate into my Visual Studio 2008 Pro at work so I didn't get the chance to use it at all.

I will be taking it for a ride for some personal stuff later next month, so I'll be back with a short review on it later.


Till then, take care,
