Shared Project and TortoiseSVN users - DO NOT upgrade working folders

Applies to CaseComplete 2014 and earlier versions

Shared Project and TortoiseSVN users - DO NOT upgrade your working copy folders to the new 1.7 format using the latest version of TortoiseSVN (v 1.7.0 or newer) - doing so will make them unusable in CaseComplete. CaseComplete 2014 and earlier will work with Subversion version 1.6 working folders only.

You can download TortoiseSVN 1.6 from http://sourceforge.net/projects/tortoisesvn/files/1.6.16/Application/. If you're running a 32-bit version of Windows, you would download and install:

  http://sourceforge.net/projects/tortoisesvn/files/1.6.16/Application/TortoiseSVN-1.6.16.21511-win32-svn-1.6.17.msi/download

or, if you're running a 64-bit version of Windows you would download and install:

  http://sourceforge.net/projects/tortoisesvn/files/1.6.16/Application/TortoiseSVN-1.6.16.21511-x64-svn-1.6.17.msi/download

    Any news on the support for Subversion 1.7?

    We are really looking forward to and waiting for it.

    Hi Severin,

    To clarify a bit, the article above refers to upgrading your working folder to version 1.7, which you may be prompted to do when using TortoiseSVN or other tools outside of CaseComplete. The component CaseComplete uses for its Subversion actions - SharpSVN - is currently version 1.6, so any working copy folders that the program creates are versioned 1.6, and need to be maintained at that revision. As long as you keep those working copy folders at version 1.6 (i.e., don't upgrade them outside of CC), the software should work just fine with version 1.7 SVN servers.  We have customers now that are using SVN server 1.7 without reporting any issues.

    Before making the switch to Subversion 1.7, I would recommend that you of course back up all of your data, as well as that you try out a test project in CaseComplete with a Subversion 1.7 server, just to make sure you're seeing the functionality you're expecting.

    We don't have a concrete plan yet as to when we'll upgrade the SharpSVN component to CaseComplete. It's a fairly major change, and will affect users' data when that change is made - any existing working folders would need to be upgraded to the new format - so we tend to leave items like that until major releases of the software. That means this particular change probably won't be made until the end of this year, at the earliest.

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the quick response.
    We have the latest version of VisualSVN server running which uses version 1.7.
    On this server we have 4 repositories accessed with TortoiseSVN.

    Now we came across CaseComplete and wanted to try it with a 5th repository on our VisualSVN server. This one wouldn't be accessed trough TortoiseSVN, only with CC, so 1.6 should be fine I guess.
    However we came across a few different errors, the worst being a .NET error message and CC had to be closed afterwards. I assumed it had something to do with the compatibilty on the 1.7 SVN server.

    So this configuration should work? If yes, should we move this out of the comments to a request?
    (Btw we have no CaseComplete license yet we are still with the trial version.)

    Best regards,

    Severin

    Yes, that should be working, Severin. Please send an email to support@serlio.com (mailto:support@serlio.com) and include as much information as possible regarding the error details, processes followed, CaseComplete version, etc. Thanks!

    For those who were wondering. We tried it again and it works.
    I could swear we tried exactly the same a few times on the first trial.

    Anyway, this time we didn't encounter any problems, it just runs smoothly.

    Thanks again,

    Severin

    I wanted to add my experience to this thread. I use a Mac laptop running VMware and I was having trouble using the checkin/out feature within CaseComplete. I uninstalled SVN 1.7 and installed 1.6 and it did not fix the problem. I also uninstalled CaseComplete (2010) and then did a custom install and still no luck. It turns out that I was storing my .ucd file on my shared desktop, and that was the cause of my problem. Once I moved the .ucd to my C drive the checkin/out worked within CaseComplete.

    Thanks, Jim. You are correct - CaseComplete data files have to be stored in a Windows environment in order for CaseComplete to load them.
