Ranorex and Perforce

Post by tcalderwood » Tue Aug 16, 2011 9:46 pm

Our company uses the version control tool called Perforce for all our our source code including all code written for use with Ranorex. The issue we are running into is we need to check out or at least remove the read only flag off of the files Ranorex is accessing or we get a bunch of write errors. Is anybody else using Perforce with Ranorex and had the same issue? Were you able to resolve the issue were files can be left checked in? In addition, were you able to integrate the Ranorex IDE with perforce?"

There is a setting in Perforce that may solve the "write error" problem.

Open your workspace in Perforce.
Connection / Edit Current Workspace... / Advanced tab
Turn on the "Allwrite" file option.
