Hi,

I am using "Tortoiseproc.exe" in a Windows command file to commit files from multiple directories. It looks like this:

"C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\tortoiseproc.exe" /command:commit /path:"D:\user\ub\work\sd\eclipse\workspace\org.example.secretweapon*D:\user\ub\work\sd\project\SecretWeapon" /logmsg:"" /notempfile /closeonend

This worked fine until I added another directory to the path:

"C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\tortoiseproc.exe" /command:commit /path:"D:\user\ub\work\sd\eclipse\workspace\org.example.secretweapon*D:\user\ub\work\sd\eclipse\workspace\org.example.secretweapontest*D:\user\ub\work\sd\project\SecretWeapon" /logmsg:"" /notempfile /closeonend

I now get the following error message:

Error  'D:\user\ub\work\sd' is not a working copy
Error  Can't open file 'D:\user\ub\work\sd\.svn\entries': The system cannot find the path specified.

I wonder if there is any limitation on the number/size of the directories to be used in the path or if I am doing something wrong?


BTW: I am using version 1.4.8.

See here:

if you're using a bat file, you ran into the 8192 char size limit.

Write your paths into a text file, separated by newlines and then pass
the path to that file (and of course leave the /notempfile param).

Thanks for the fast response.

Actually the problem was not related to size limitations.


I wasn't aware of the fact that all directories specified in the "/
path:" parameter must be subdirectories of a common working copy
directory.
