Installing TortoiseSVN to Windows Vista
In a previous article, I installed Subversion and TortoiseSVN to a Windows XP Home Edition machine. Later, I upgraded the installation.
Just recently I covered installing Subversion 1.4.6 to Windows Vista. This time I'll be installing TortoiseSVN on that same machine.
The system I'm using is a HP Pavilion a6360t, with 4GB install RAM, 2.20 GHz, with two cores, running Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, 32-bit.
Since TortoiseSVN is for Windows, it makes it even easier to find the version to download. Right on the home page we see a link for the download page, where we can get a copy of the most current version.
At the time of this writing that's version 1.4.8, built against version 1.4.6 of Subversion.
I'll be downloading the file TortoiseSVN-188.8.131.5237-win32-svn-1.4.6.msi.
Running the program, you'll work your way through a number of installation screens.
With TortoiseSVN installed, we can now interact with Subversion in a Windows-friendly way, instead of relying upon the command line.
In a later article, we'll actually use Subversion and TortoiseSVN to put a Web site under source control, as well as a Windows application (based upon the .NET Framework).
While I've covered Dreamweaver in the past, I'll be looking at using Subversion with Visual Studio, to see if it's indeed possible.
