svn 1.6 not detected by visual studio plugin


I've just update my svn server and client command line to Subversion 1.6 and I can't run personal build.
I get the following message "Failed to run Subversion process. Please check Subversion settings."

But when I come into the Subversion Settings it doesn't allow me selectiong the new svn.exe file. ("Unabled to use selected svn.exe from "D:\App\Collabnet Subversion Client\svn.exe")

I cannot not revert my svn command line to 1.4 because it shows "client is too old"

svn, version 1.6.0 (r36650)

Any idea ?

I'm having this same problem, and it seems like upgrading the SVN client did it.

On the client, I am running the latest TortoiseSVN version, which is: TortoiseSVN 1.6.0, Build 15855 - 64 Bit , 2009/03/21 12:36:36
Subversion 1.6.0, .

On the server, I am running VisualSVN 1.6 which is not the latest, but it was working).

Thanks for any help.

Ok, I found a workaround using an old (but not too old) version of svn ( v 1.5.6) downloaded here:
and it did the job.

We have added support for Subversion 1.6 into TeamCity addin for Visual Studio.

Please try usgin build from forthcomming TeamCity 4.1 EAP.

The workaround it to rollback all tools to run as Subversion 1.5.
