Network drive
« on: October 23, 2023, 10:34:30 AM »
Hello,
We work with my colleagues on a network folder where our programs are stored.
This allows us to easily share files, make backups...
Since the last update of the Guide, 2023.3.3.5531, it is impossible to compile a program located in a network folder:


How do you work together?

Have a good day

We basically use the network drive for sharing and backups, if we want to work on a project we copy it to our local drive.

We use Autodesk Vault since most of our engineers are primarily working on Inventor and AutoCAD.  It works swell for backups and rev control.

As per the above, I also work on a drive locally then backup to our network at the end of day.

Hello,

This is the answer I got when I asked the developers about this.

"There can be two reasons. There is no way to know why the user is getting the error, but the first one is the most likely cause:

If the user does not have a project that is compiled in a separate build directory, you will not be able to compile it if it is not on your own hard drive. This is due to a check that was incorrectly added within the separate build folder framework (P1TOOL-1099 Separate Build Folder).

The second reason is if the user has a project that compiles in separate build directory. In that case, the setting needs to be updated so that the build directory is on the hard drive."


This will be reported as a bug.

Hello Tor,
Thanks for your response.

Do you have a revision management system to recommend?
Have you tested different systems?

Have good day

Hello Camox,

I have only worked with Tortoise SVN, and that's OK.
But since I have not tested or worked with other "brands" I'm probably not the best person to suggest a specific one.  I know that GIT hub is popular/widely used, but I have never used it.

Maybe someone else in the Forum has tested several tools and have a good insight to what is good or bad? Especially if you develop with PLUS+1 Tools.

Have a nice day.

Hello,
I installed and configured the SVN server and Tortoise client for Plus+1 programs.

I'm wondering how to use it, and in particular the folder architecture.
Currently we have a folder for each machine serial number, with a subfolder for each program version.

Should we keep this architecture?
In your experience, how do you proceed?

Thanks.
Have a nice day
