Uploading FEZ hydra firmware

I am uploading the hydra firmware but I hit a brick wall :wall:

tortoisesvn is not working with long paths and we do have some every long ones!

For example


That was the path for one of the files and on top of this it goes into main/GHIelectronics/mainboards/fezhydra…etc on the gadgeteer codeplex.

How can we solve this? I am not seeing anything on the web about a fix :wall:

NO NO NO NO! Fix it! I want the firmwares!

Will shortening the path help ?

May be you can use SUBST command to shorten the path a little bit

subst H: “C:…\NETMF4.1Firmware\DeviceCode\DeviceCode\GHI_OSH_Drivers\libraries\GHIElectronics.OSH.NETMF.Hardware\Managed”

You may need to limit the path to 254 characters to the subst command. Once set using “H:” or what ever drive letter you used will get you to the same path.


Use the svn client from command line

check the syntax for “svn up c:\very\long\path”


check the syntax for “svn co http://path/to/source/control c:\very\long\path”

Files are up :slight_smile:

Great! Thank you! :clap:


See this please http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/12/4891/

swtich from SVN to GIT :wink:

The very long path is a windows limitation, not SVN.
