Use TortiseGit Client Setting

I have noticed the setting in Options, Use TortiseGit client, keeps getting turned off.  Anyone else having this problem?  If not, I may have missed setting a .gitignore entry.  There are multiple users in the branch currently.  Could someone double check me on the file I should be ignoring and the entry I should make in .gitignore?

 

Thanks!

Re: Use TortiseGit Client Setting

That setting is not typically stored in the source that you typically back up.  That's an application configuration setting, not a project setting.  So, you need to make that change on all machines individually AND it needs to be set for all users (as I believe the configuration is stored in user profile).

Re: Use TortiseGit Client Setting

Upon further investigation based on the info in your reply, the setting defaults back to 'not checked' each time I close and open the app.  Could this be an issue with the 14.4 upgrade?

What happens if you run as admin, make the change, then re-open?  It could be that the setting isn't being saved properly because of some write access.

TestComplete is always run as administrator.  It is required for several of our app tests.

Hrm....  try doing a re-install/repair of Tortoise GIT... could be that TC is not picking it up after the upgrade.

Re: Use TortiseGit Client Setting

It works fine as long as I remember to click the setting when I open TestComplete.

@sonya_m   Why was this marked as a solution?  This issue is not resolved.  😕  Whatever I do, if I set this setting, close and reopen TestComplete, the setting gets reset.  Tortise works fine within TestComplete aslong as I remember to check this setting each time I open it.

Re: Use TortiseGit Client Setting

@scot1967 Just unmarked it. Having to switch it back on every time doesn't sound convenient at all.

If nothing from what tristaanogre suggested helps, I would suggest contacting support to understand the underlying reasons for this behavior.

If you do, please share what they suggest.
