SVN options grayed out.

Unread postby Dan Rosen » Thu Apr 20, 2017 5:59 pm

Converted our projects from .hmxz to .hmxp and have checked them into subversion manually. Now I'm trying to use the built in Subversion support but the Subversion (SVN) Actions are grayed out. We have both Tortise SVN and another 32-bit version, 1.8.17. Here the version from the command line:

Code: Select all
c:\data>svn --version
svn, version 1.8.17 (r1770682)
   compiled Nov 30 2016, 13:25:58 on x86-microsoft-windows

* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme
* ra_serf : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV protocol using serf.

Hi Dan,

SVN prior to 1.9.3 should work fine out of the box provided that Tortoise and your SVN server both have the same version number. Help+Manual has probably not found the client automatically. Go to View > Program Options > Subversion, make sure that SVN support is active and if it still doesn't work locate the SVN client (Tortoise) binaries manually.

Hi Tim, Got it working by loading a 32-bit SVN client. Previously only had a 64-bit one. Is this something that should be mentioned in the docs? Thanks for the quick support. .... Dan

We're probably going to finalize the description of this in the 7.3 documentation when it comes out. We've been waiting on this in the hope that Tortoise would change their distribution policy, but this doesn't seem to be happening. The problem is that Tortoise suddenly stopped including the DLL for 32-bit applications like Help+Manual with their distribution for 64-bit Windows. It currently looks as though this is a final decision, but we're still hoping... :roll:
