Computer: windows 7 64bit
SlikSvn is installed. The System variables PATH has the bin folder set correctly:
...; C:\Program Files\SlikSvn\bin; ...
If I type "svn" in the Run dialog (by pressing WIN+R), I can see the svn.exe is called in the cmd window.
If I type "cmd" in the Run dialog, a cmd windows opens up. In that window, typing svn shows the error:
'svn' is not recognized as an internal or external command
Typing PATH comamnd in the cmd window reveals the correct path as seen in the Enviroment Variables.
I even added a new System variables "SVNPATH" with "C:\Program Files\SlikSvn\bin" in it, but it doesn't work neither.
Does anyone have a solution?
Do you really have a space between the semi-colon and the
C: as shown in the question:
...; C:\Program Files\SlikSvn\bin; ... ^
If so, that's probably your problem (Windows will not trim such whitespace when searching the path fields).
...;C:\Progra~1\SlikSvn\bin;.... Why did MS have the bright idea of putting programs under the
C:\Program Filesdirectory? Why not simply
C:\Apps? Shorter and no annoying spaces. There's a maximum of 250 characters in directory/file names which means putting C# projects under
C:\Documents and Settings\dweintraub\Data\VisualStudiois just asking for trouble - David W. 2012-04-04 04:17
I solved this by quoting the path in PATH like so: "C:\Program Files\SlikSvn\bin\svn". One would think Windows would allow file paths with spaces but apparently not!
