Cannot find base revision

Cannot find base revision

Postby rickyjonesus » Fri 09 Jan 2015 22:16

When trying to compare files, we only get one revision of the file which is the latest.

Also when clicking View Base Version an error is displayed "Error while getting the file revision from the repository."

Please tell us what VCS do you use? Does the error occur at all files?

Same problem occurred here. Trying to Compare/View Last Revision of a file with comment, and the following error pops up:

Error while getting the file revision from the repository.

Possible cause:
You trying to open a file that was removed in an earlier or current revision.


Previous review projects of the same code base don't give that error. However, all the last review projects and all comments/files result in the same error.
We are using SVN, Visual Studio 2010.

Note: a team member created review with myself as Author and Moderator and himself as Reviewer.

We need more information to deal with your problem. What version of Review Assistant and Code Compare do you use? Also, please provide us with screen-shots showing revision tree from your VCS client. You can post your response here or write to support.

We solved the problem by changing the repo path of the project from

Code: Select all
https://xxx/production/LabelProgrammerLaserMachine

to

Code: Select all
https://xxx/production/LabelProgrammerLaserMachine/trunk


although the working directory pointed to the root, not the trunk:

Code: Select all
C:\Repo\production\LabelProgrammerLaserMachine
