Tutorial :Windows Explorer columns (in details view) for SVN in Windows 7 (with TortoiseSVN )


In Win XP, for my svn repository folders in Windows Explorer, I added an extra column called "SVN Status" (or similar). I used it to determine which files were modified, added, not versioned, etc. You can do this by switching to the details view Windows Explorer, right-clicking on the column list, and choosing "More...".

After installing Windows 7, I've noticed that all the SVN column choices are no longer there. Does anyone have any idea how I can get those options back in again? Is this an issue with TortoiseSVN?

I'm running the 32-bit version of Windows 7 (fresh install), with the most recent version of TortoiseSVN (TortoiseSVN 1.6.6, Build 17493 - 32 Bit , 2009/10/19 20:22:18). I've checked the TortoiseSVN options, and I don't see anything so I'm assuming it automatically puts them in as options in Windows Explorer.

Thanks for your help!


This is a known problem with Windows Vista and Windows 7. The explorer no longer supports special/custom columns. See the TortoiseSVN Columns In Windows Explorer for details.


Using the "Tortoise SVN - Check for modifications" command is a kind of work around for me concernign this problem.


It appears that there is now a solution for this although I haven't tried it out myself.
