Hello -

Long time PowerBuilder developer, first time Agent SVN user.  I did a search on the community forums and can't find anything related to my issues.

Using PB2017.

It took some time to get Agent SVN configured and connected to the repository ( web based ).

When connecting to the repository, it doesn't provide any message that it successfully connected, so I'm assuming it did.  ( it use to give me a message that the repository was invalid ).


The main issue - When I open PowerBuilder and try connecting the workspace to source control, it doesn't even see Agent SVN - it only sees GIT and Subversion.  There is another PB developer here who set his up years ago, but doesn't remember how it was setup/configured.  ( They also don't have any documentation for doing this process ).  I did compare my environment and configuration - Agent SVN, PowerBuilder, Registry - and appears to be setup the same ( though using a different SVN repository )


A secondary question unrelated to Agent SVN, but apparently related to version control ( because the workspace connects fine without trying to use an SCM controlled workspace ) - Could not add target because of bad application library.


Apology for lack of screenshots - against policy for me to share.


Thanks for any guidance.

- John

Agent SVN is accessed through the old MSSCCI pathway.  If you go to the Workspace Properties, Agent SVN should appear on the drop down there.  if it doesn't you may want to check the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SourceCodeControlProvider\InstalledSCCProviders registry setting, as that is where PowerBuilder looks for MSSCCI providers.

You need to install TortoiseSVN.

TortoiseSVN is installed and works fine. We utilize it through Windows Explorer, etc., without issue.

OK great. There are some configuration steps to do in PowerBuilder as well. Please read the docs: https://docs.appeon.com/pb2021/pbug/Using_Source_Control.html#Using_SVN_source_control_system
