Remove CVS/SVN binding from your folders

September 10, 2008

Sometimes, you may need to remove hidden CVS/SVN folders from the multi lever hierarchical folders. You do not want  traverse to each folder and remove hidden folders. There is a easy way to do that. Below is the text which you  need to copy it to notepad and save it as .reg file. Make sure you change what folder you want to delete and change appropriately in the text.

For example the below snippet is for deleting CVS folders. If you want to delete the SVS, replace CVS with SVN or .SVN or even _SVN.

   1: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
   3: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\DeleteCVS]
   4: @="Delete CVS Folders"
   6: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\DeleteCVS\command]
   7: @="cmd.exe /c \"TITLE Removing CVS Folders in %1 && FOR /r \"%1\" %%f IN (CVS) DO RD /s /q \"%%f\" \""

This will add a new context menu to folders with the name  “Delete CVS Folders”, once you hit this it will recursively delete all the CVS folders.

Note: You cannot get back your deleted folders. Take extra caution while doing this operation.

Installing AnkhSVN on Vista

April 2, 2008

For those who does not know about AnkhSVN, it is a free Visual Studio .NET addin for the Subversion version control system. It allows you to perform the most common version control operations directly from inside the VS.NET IDE.

I was trying to install AnkhSVN on my office laptop, which currently running on Vista OS and has Visual Studio 2005. After setup was complete successfully I started the VS.NET and received this below error.


I initially thought it as problem with having two versions of Visual Studio (2003 and 2005) which I had. I removed VS 2003, but still received the same error.

I found this entry, which will help you to resolve this issue.,guid,a77d0675-8d15-48c2-bdce-43096ba7dbce.aspx

PS: You wont face this issue with latest version of AnkhSVN. Download from here.
