There are differences between my local copy and source
control. Why doesn't my local copy match source control? For some
reason when I go to Win. Eplor. to delete the CPD file from my
local copy it tells me access is denied. I have done this before
when I have had this problem and I have always had success in
deleting it. I have checked permissions and tried it as an
administrator and nothing will work. What next?
Also, there are many topics and folders that I have deleted
from the project (through RoboHelp HTML) but when I go to
RoboSource Control these files/folders are still there but they
aren't showing up in my local copy? Why do I have such
discrepancies beteween my local copy and source control?
I'm sorry that I can't answer your question. I don't even use
RoboSource Control. However, I do remember not too long ago reading
on this forum that the CPD file is NEVER to be included in
RoboSource Control. If you could get rid of that file somehow,
perhaps it would help.
Sorry for the lame reply.
From a cursory examination (and subsequent decision not to
use it) of RoboSource, done in '04, I doubt that it's any more
tightly integrated with RH than any other source control product.
That is, the adding and deleting of files is not automated to
reflect what you do inside the RH project: you must perform the
adds and deletes manually.
This was the way we worked at a previous job, where we used
Visual SourceSafe (VSS), which I believe to be the source control
product that plays best with RH (but which is not supported by IT
at this job).
