If you are getting "<<<<<<< .mine". in your code, that usually means that
you have a conflict on that file that is not resolved.

Try this:
1. Right click the file  -> Open T.SVN submeny -> Edit conflict.
   (Now edit conflicts and save the file)

2. Right click the file again -> Open T.SVN submeny -> choose Resolved..


There is a video tutorial here on how to solve conflicts..

Good Luck!

I can't give more information. Visual Studio doesn't offer more information, only this error description.

Conflicts are resolved with TortoiseSVN.

Just Revert it by SVN menu (Recommend you should have a backup version of the file before)

it'll come back to last version

then change your code manually to what you want

then Update again

There wasn't "<<<<<" in the whole solution

to trunghieubkit

I have revert

I wanted nothing to change, so I did nothing

I updated

and the problem is solved...

But why this happends? I want to understand a little more this error, because it happends quite often in our team. (I solved it as usual with backup, checkout and manually copy-paste my code to new version)...

Does anybody has some more insight in this error?

I've had a mistake,
Anyway, here's my experience:

You should Update your source before editing on it (very important)

The error with "<<<<<" is a big problem of SVN, it's happened when you have changed a file and your coworkers have done too, So SVN just merges your code and your coworker's code together, and it's marked by   "<<<<< .mine" to distinguish between yours and another one's

If you have the same problem

First: Copy yours as a backup version

Then: Edit what you want on it (don't forget to told your coworkers not Commit the file you have been editing)

Last: Commit it again

This happens when you update from SVN Server. Tortoise tries to merge your local changes with the the working version in SVN Server and fail. Unfortunately, Tortoise doesn't remove the marking character <<<<<<< .mine in these files.

So, that's a bug in SVN? (incompatible with Visual Studio environment)?

>> Tortoise doesn't remove the marking character <<<<<<< .mine in these files

I can't find it in the files

That's possibly a bug of Tortoise.
Error      49      Files has invalid value "<<<<<<< .mine". Illegal characters in path. --> Does VS specify which files ?
