Unable to add to or create the SharedRepository - BDS 2006
Posted on 2007-08-09
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.
