    • SVN - Subversion option if you are using the Subversion version control system.
  • Enable - Check to enable selected version control applications.

SVN Executables 

You can use the Subversion that is built-in(recommended) or an external Subversion installation.

  • Use built-in Subversion - Check this option to use built-in Subversion.
  • Use external Subversion- Check this option to use external Subversion.
    • Path to main executable - Specify the path to the main executable, usually svn.exe. This will then allow software to perform most of Subversions repository actions, such as commit and update.
    • Path to admin executable - Specify the path to the admin executable, usually svnadmin.exe.This will then allow software to create a repository. If you already have a repository you may skip this option. Restart Altium Designer to confirm your choice of version control system.
    • Show a warning if installed version of Subversion is unsupported - Check this option to show a warning if installed Subversion is not supported.

Note that it is necessary to have Subversion 1.5.0 or later installed in order for the SVN commands to work correctly from Altium Designer.

  • Write debug information into Output Panel - Check this option to allow writing debug info to the Output panel.
