Unable to add to or create the SharedRepository - BDS 2006

Just upgraded from Delphi 7 to BDS 2006.

When it comes to defining the shared repository, we cannot add to it or in fact create it. Adding a form and clicking OK results in  no error message BUT nothing is actually created - the network folder remains blank.

There are no access restrictions - if I watch the folder, I can see a file created in there to indicate that the respository is locked. This file is removed when the Add To Repository screen is closed.

The repository is crucial for us. There are various posts commenting on this broken feature, but none as to how it should be overcome.

P.S. Update 2 applied, together with Hotfix rollup 2.

Hope someone can help.

Regards

Steve

I think the hot fix roll ups are up to 9 or so by now.  Check again and see if having all of the hot fixes takes care of the issue.

Applied hotfixes 1:13 (except 2), but the problem still persists.

Investigation has shown that this issue was originally raised with CodeGear  towards the end of last year, yet a fix to this has yet to be produced.

I can't believe - given the importance of this feature - that it's been so badly neglected. It is certainly going to cause a drop in productivity amongst our developer base whilst developers are trained on how to work around this.

Not impressed with Codegear at all. Seems to be doing a Borland all over again - rushing out Dephi 2007 with no .NET support and leaving significant problems with their main product.,

Since I see there is no more activity on this so far, I will put in a note to the people at code gear.  If you can wait for their response I will let you know.

Ok... here is the official word from CodeGear.

I'm sorry, but the shared repository currently does not work. You can watch http://qc.codegear.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=32917 to see when a fix might occur.

There doesn't seem much else I can say here. If I do not hear back from you by the end Monday, August 27th, I shall close your case at that time.

Thanks for your efforts.

Very disappointing - I'm not holding out much hope that they'll get around to fixing it - I can't imagine it would be that difficult.
