Absolutely amazing plug-in, getting better with each release. I hop it continues to be free.

It's just great

Integração funciona muito bem para quem utiliza o SVN como versionamento de fontes.

by Mr. Javaman II | October 28 2014

This tool is a POS. I can't tell you how many times VS has been out-of-synch with SVN. Of course when that happens it's a herculean task to recover. Perhaps it's the version of SVN we are using or perhaps it's this tool, I'm not sure where the problem lay. But the least of a programmers worries should be in tracking if VS changes made it to the repository.

Wow i got the 100th review!! cool!

It could have more features, like changing the color of the color bar to mark changed code that is not commited. But it is free and works very well.

best alternative to the expensive and over complicated TFS server from microsoft. just amazing, and with a free private online repository at you need nothing more.

  • No Support for 'Dark' VS Color Theme in VS 2014
    7 Posts | Last post August 11, 2015
    • The Pending Changes window is still useless in VS with the 'Dark' theme.  Most all of the text is unreadable.  Please fix this!
    • Can you follow up on this on our mailinglist. Fixing 'is unusable' is not really actionable, while we can change things like specific colors bound to something easily if there is a detailed issue.
    • The colors are dark blue and purple on a black background. Impossible to see. See:  If we could adjust the colors in options|fonts and colors then it would be reasonable, but I can't find the entry to adjust.
    • Great extension!
      But please have a look at VS 2013/2015 with dark theme and see that the entries in the pending changes window e.g. are hardly readable because of dark background and dark blue and purple text colors. Please use light text colors in dark theme or give us an option to choose colors by ourself.
      Thank you!
    • Having the same problem with the dark theme and the pending changes window. Any hope for a fix?
    • We are working on a solution, but that might take some time. (The Win32 listview that we currently use doesn't provide enough customization options. We are currently re-implementing this control as WPF listview)
      Note that the text colors directly after switching to dark are not 100% the same as starting VS with the dark theme. Refreshing might help.
    • Still almost impossible to read in Dark Theme. The entries are purple/dark blue on black. Hopefully this is fixed soon! 
  • AnkhGit?
    2 Posts | Last post January 14, 2015
    • Hello guys, Great Extension!
      We're thinking of moving to Git, and were wondering if you are considering a Git version of AnkhSVN. If you are, that'd be amazing.
    • Not announced yet, but we are working on Git support in the development version.
  • Update Project?
    3 Posts | Last post January 14, 2015
    • I have 2.4.12012.1 connected to a 1.7 server.
      If i use the current update to 2.5.12040 the complete project is shown that it would need an update, and therefore is not available for source control.
      I uninstalled 2.5.12040, installed 2.4.12012.1  and everythign is fine.
      Now I get an pending update for Ankh which I do not want to install for obvious reasons.
      How can I get rid of the update message, so that the VS tray notifier only shows other updates, if new ones are available? 
      Or do i need to uninstall ankh completly and go for another SCC?
    • Update Messages are crap. 
      actual Version: 2.4.12443 (newest for 1.7 according to ankh.colllab Webiste)
      newest Version: 2.5. ... (he, that is 1.8 - so not useful...)
    • When upgrading between minor versions of Subversion, all you need is an 'svn upgrade' per working copy. AnkhSVN offers to do this for you when it encounters such a working copy.
      This warning (instead of just automatic upgrade) is to avoid accidental upgrades when you share working copies with either different Subversion clients (TortoiseSVN?) or in some cases different users (Not recommended: network stored working copies)
      Note that the subversion server doesn't have to be upgraded at the same time, nor do any users who work on separate working copies need an upgrade. (See Subversion and AnkhSVN FAQs)
  • Opening solution from MRU doesn't get latest
    2 Posts | Last post January 14, 2015
    • I have VS pinned to my task bar and typically open solutions from the MRU that is displayed with a right mouse click. 
      When we used Visual SourceSafe I could set it to get the most recent version. This capability is gone with Subversion.
      Is there any way to get latest version when opening a local copy of the solution?
    • There is currently no such function. I would recommend adding an item on, to see if others would also want this.
      Personally I would recommend against enabling this as it makes it impossible to start a new Visual Studio instance to debug exactly the same case, when Visual Studio dies. (A common case when developing on Visual Studio itself ;-))
  • Microsoft return Windows Runtime Object vs COM Object
    2 Posts | Last post January 14, 2015
    • Hi Team,
      We create a custom project like C#, c++ project in visual studio.
      We want to support different source control provider. Currently we have supported TFS.
      Now when we want to support AnkhSVN, we found the issue below:
      When adding a new model file, the plus icon cannot display before the model file.
      Since AnkhSVN is open source, after debugging, we found that:
      When it gets glyph status, SVN cannot get the correct value. The status is None instead of ShouldBeAdded (expected)
      The root cause is that OnAfterOpenProject(IVsHierarchy pHierarchy, int fAdded)
      pHierarchy is a Windows runtime object and is added to _projectMap(Here it's the ProjectNode)
      While in TrackProjectChanges called by OnAfterAddFilesEx
      internal bool TrackProjectChanges(IVsSccProject2 project, out bool trackCopies)
                  // We can be called with a null project
                  SccProjectData data;
                  if (project != null && _projectMap.TryGetValue(project, out data))
      The project is COM object. That's why _projectMap cannot get the value since it includes the Windows Runtime Object as the key.
      However, in C# project, Visual Studio return both the COM Object.
      Why Microsoft gives the different type for the same ProjectNode?
      Any advice/comments appreciated!
    • This issue was handled on the AnkhSVN user list, and now resolved.
  • Update multiple projects with different SVN repositories
    1 Posts | Last post September 03, 2014
    • i have two projects include within the same solution.  One is a resusable componet that will be compiled seperately and then later included just as a dll.  For now, when i have both projects open in the same solution and i perform an update, it only updates the code under the one of the repositores and excludes any updates from the other.  When i do a commit it is able to tell that their are multiple differrent SVN repositories and it asks me chich ones i would like to commit against.  It would be great if the update would update all resources under the main solution

  • doesn't play nicely with Productivity Power Tools 2013 in SSDT
    1 Posts | Last post August 12, 2014
    • Hi guys, running vs2013 on a SSDT project but with all the Productivity Power Tools extensions enabled (I think except Structure Visualizer) and running ankhsvn, if I rename a file (that is already committed to the repo) I get a COM error E_FAIL. 
      If I disable all the individual productivity modules in options I can rename the file. I have successfully used Color Printing, Fix Mixed Tabs, Middle-click scrolling, Solution Error Visualizer, Structure Visualizer, Syntactic Line Compression. 
      Sorry I ran out of time for experiments. It may be an issue with Productivity Power Tools (and have raised to them also) but thought I'd see if you know of the issue
      running AnhSVN v2.5.12471.17
      Productivity Power Tools v12.0.30519.1
  • Version 2.5.12266 Crashing VS 2013 Pro
    3 Posts | Last post February 15, 2014
    • Anyone else having this issue. Ever since I installed this Visual Studio has a hard time opening and crashes on me about 80% of the time. Uninstalled and all is good now. VS does not crash any more. 
    • yes now a days i am facing the same issue, but when open source offline, its working fine...
      have you found any solution...?
    • We can't reproduce this issue without more information, nor did we hear about this on our user support list over the last few months.
      Make sure you report crashes Visual Studio crashes to Microsoft as they actively look at it and contact addin vendors if they determine a root cause of common problems.
