On a Windows machine, easiest way would be to install Tortoise SVN 1.8, checkout a subversion repository that's in C# (sharpsvn for example) and check if version control works.
Comment 2 narayanp 2014-01-09 09:48:10 UTC
I have checked this on windows after installing Tortoise SVN 1.8
1. I have created SVN repository under D: drive
2. In Xamarin Studio Ihave created project and then Version Control->Checkout->Subversion.
3. In URL I have typed the path File:///D:/SVNRepository(which I have created on D: drive)
4. Click OK

Now It is giving me exception: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/0516d7ea0031fd49dfce

Please look into it and let me know have I missed any step here?

Wait a second.

Created a SVN repository using svnadmin?

If you used the repository checkout as the repository URL, that's wrong. :o
Comment 4 narayanp 2014-01-10 07:34:56 UTC
Marius, I have not create SVN repository using svnadmin. I have created using Tortoisesvn manually

Now I have tried different steps to checkout solution using svn. I am getting exception "The given path's format is not supported". I am attaching a screencast which is showing steps which I have followed: http://screencast.com/t/maxdQZdL

Exception details: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/5146a53f25e5e48cc1ed

Please look into it and let me know are these correct steps which I have followed?

Hey narayanp.

You cannot checkout a subversion repository in the same way as you would for a git one.

Either create a repository using svnadmin in commandline or checkout an existing one on the internet (svnsharp for example).
Comment 6 narayanp 2014-01-31 06:12:13 UTC
I have checked this with svnsharp and observed that in status bar it display Solution checked out. But does not display solution because this svnsharp does not contain .sln. While i am checking checked-out file on targeted directory, It is showing me svn/trunk folder. This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/KfcrXYOIB

Please let me know is it correct behavior which has changed in this feature?
Comment 7 Marius Ungureanu 2014-02-01 04:48:11 UTC
I repeat, you need to checkout the subversion repository with (subversion 1.8):

svn checkout https://sharpsvn.open.collab.net/svn/sharpsvn/trunk sharpsvn --username guest

Then, try opening the sln (there is one) with XS.
Comment 8 Marius Ungureanu 2014-02-01 04:51:41 UTC
To verify in XS that it is fine, you should see overlays.
Comment 9 Marius Ungureanu 2014-07-10 11:35:22 UTC
This has gone many months without any update, I'm just going to close it.
