Getting AnkhSVN to work with VS2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — andreakn @ 03:02

For our project, we are using SVN as our code repository, integration with VS2008 can ba achieved by VisualSVN, but you have to pay for it. A free alternative is AnkhSVN, but after installing it, it works perfectly in VS2005, but won’t show up in VS2008.

The fix is to get the registry settings found in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\AddIns\Ankh

and put them into
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\AddIns\Ankh

here follows a snippet you can paste into a new .reg file and execute on your machine (assuming that you installed AnkhSVN in the default location “c:\program files\AnkhSVN”

*begin snippet*
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\AddIns]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\AddIns\Ankh]
“SatelliteDllPath”=”C:\\Program Files\\AnkhSVN\\”
“LoadBehavior”=dword:00000001
“CommandPreload”=dword:00000001
“AboutBoxIcon”=””
