Access is Denied Error While Loading Solution to Subversion via VisualSVN

by dcurtis 9/30/2009 8:57:00 AM

I just installed VisualSVN Server and VisualSVN yesterday as a means of source control for my Visual Studio projects.  The installation went fine; however, when i tried to add my first project to subversion, I kept getting an "Access is denied" error when trying to create a new repository.  I searched around for a solution, and I couldn't find one so I started on a trial and error process until I could find the solution.

When I installed VisualSVN Server, I elected to use Windows Authentication.  Obviously the error indicated there was some type of permissions issue, but I was using an administrative account when running the project so I thought I would have no issues.  I looked at the groups in the management console to see if there were any new groups added with the installation of VisualSVN Server and I did find a new group named "VisualSVN Server Admins" so I added my account to the group and tried again, but I received the same error again.

I thought about the problem for awhile and thought I should try to create the repository using the VisualSVN Server interface and then load the solution to the existing repository rather than creating a new one.  So, I created a new repository, right-clicked on the repository and made sure my account had read/write access to the repository and then tried adding the solution again.  Voila, the solution was added successfully!
