Subject TortoiseSVN on the shared drive to be used by multiple users
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 16:42:11 GMT

In our office, each of us has his own PC. Cygwin is installed on each PC. 
Every PC can access the shared S drive.

I have installed TortoiseSVN on my own PC. I am thinking doing a short-cut: 
no need to install TortoiseSVN on everybody's PC. I just copied my 
C:/Program Files/TortoiseSVN to the S drive. Now everybody in Cygwin on his 
PC can have 'svn' command(svn is an alias now to avoid typing the long 
path). For example, "svn --version" works on everybody's Cygwin.

The problem is authentication. On their PC Window Explorer, mouse right 
click won't show those SVN options in the menu. On their Cygwin, I typed 
this command:

svn ls username my_username --password my_secret_pswd URL

prompting me to enter password for the user 'my_username', I did and it 
hangs there forever.

I checked his PC %AppData%/Roaming/Subversion/auth/svn.simple. The 
directory has been created on his own drive. But it is always empty.

I even cleaned my own svn.simple directory, re-run TortoiseSVN gui again, 
this time I entered his username and password so that a credential file was 
created in my svn.simple/. Then I moved this file(containing his 
credentials) to his own empty svn.simple/, then on his Cygwin I tried "svn 
ls URL". It still didn't work.

Is that possible for me to set up such a thing so that everybody can use 
the shared svn on the S drive, no need to install his own?

Thank you.
