Is there support for source control in visual studio express versions? I'm trying to set up ankhsvn with VSC# but can't seem to find a source control setting in VS. (plus ankhsvn downloads seem down at the moment)
Do you guys use tortoise instead?

Hi Letharion,
Have you tried the recently released Ankhsvn 2.0 to access code in your subversion repository? http://ankhsvn.open.collab.net/servlets ... ageID=3794
Excellent product, uses the Visual Studio SCAPI. Just follow the simple doc/FAQ to setup (disclaimer: i didn't read most of the docs though, it just worked out of the box)
I mostly use AnkhSVN in VStudio environment, but also use TortoiseSVN client when outside of VStudio in windows file explorer, it has its place as well (for example quick easy way to out a new project from Google code, Sourceforge or one of the other hundreds major subversion repositories around the net. Most major projects both commercial and open source are on Subversion now so familiarity with using it is a skill you will reuse and take advantage of a lot).

Anton mentioned Source Off Site, but from experience I would strongly recommend against using it. I have been trying to talk them out of using it for years :-), but I guess it does kind-of-work if you have it on the local network and extremely few programmers actively using it at the same time. SoS came into being as a hack work around for the problems in Visual Source Safe - to make remote access work, but the combination has so many problems, limitations and force you to do things the hard way that its not funny. (search the net for "Visual Source Safe problems" and/or "Vs Subversion" you will find plenty of analysis).

Nice, its come a long way since I last looked at it. Distributed source control are all the rage now and have some nice advantages in large team settings.

Here is a comparison of strengths/weaknesses Subversion Vs Git, if anyone reading this thread needs to decide which one to choose:

Thanks a lot krn_2k :) Ankhsvn downloads are working today, so I'm gonna install it now.

This is also the reason I choose to go with subversion rather than git, because as far as I could tell, there's better support for Visual Studio.

I still can't seem to find any settings for source-control. I have installed Ankh now, and I'm looking under Tools -> Options for anything related to plug-ins or source control. Show all settings is checked, and I still can't find it, so I'm thinking that perhaps Express versions doesn't support source-control?

I found on Ankhs website

Does it work with the Visual Studio 2005 Express versions?
No, and it might never do so. The current position from Microsoft is that these SKUs will not support addins.

So probably that's why I can't make it work in 2008 either. Might be time to upgrade...

Note there is a fully functional 90 day trial of VS2008 Professional Edition available here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vs2008/ ... 68305.aspx

and If you decide to keep it after that, all you do is enter your purchased serial number so there is no need to upgrade again.

There is also a service pack1 out for VS2008/.NET 3.5. I included the link here just in case the above download still does not come with it (check help->about after you install VS2008):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/cc533448.aspx

References: Subversion (SVN) install/setup links:

Download/Install Subversion server here (comes with a very basic command line client):
http://www.collab.net/products/subversion/

See FAQ's for common questions: http://wiki.open.collab.net/wiki/Index

The command line client is not very productive, on Windows TortoiseSVN is the most popular: http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/

AnkhSVN is another svn client that integrates with Visual Studio (2005/08 ) - can be run alongside tortoisesvn and you can swap between clients for different tasks:

I reviewed quite a few version control systems and Git definitely would be the choice. However, Git has a poor windows support, it's mainly for Linux. Which brings me to the question.

Anton, when will the OpenQuant be available for Linux?

The only reason I'm still using windows is that OpenQuant needs it. When microsoft drops XP support, I'll drop windows. Hopefully OpenQuant will be available for Linux at that time!

Cheers,

Jafi

Hey,

I'm using svn but have trouble adding code.cs and scripts to the working copy given that they are not in the same folder as other files of my solution.
They are "added as Links" in VS... Btw, I use VisualSVN.
Any idea?

Thanks!
