setting up qt creator to work with tortoise svn on windows

I was wondering how one would set up qt creator 2.1.0 to work with tortoise svn on windows 7. I have been using tortoise for quite some time now and would like for it to work. I have tried to find some tutorials online and been unsuccessful.

I use QT Creator and Tortoise for testing and playing around with svn.

You have to install Tortoise including the "command line client tools" option. Open QT Creator, go to Tool / Options / Version Control / SVN. Insert "C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\svn.exe" to "Subversion Command"

Create a new project (if you have none)

Create an Repository with Tortoise --> https://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-quick-start.html

If you want to use your original project folder as local working copy --> https://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-import.html#tsvn-dug-import-in-place

If you have checked out your project once and reopen it the QTCreator, QT Creator will realize that your project has a svn VersionControl. You can see the revision in [] after the name of your project. Now you can checkout an update your Repository with QTCreator: Press Tools > Subversion.

I know - this post is 5 years old. I've been looking for a tutorial how to use tortoise "with" QTCreator for a long time. This is the conclusion of my research. Hope it'll help other newbies having the same problem.

You can't use tortoise directly with Qt. But you can setup Qt to use SilkSvn to work with your tortoise server. here is the link : silksvn
