Visual Studio 2013 Static Activation Key option
· ☕ 1 min read
I have read people’s complaints about the need to sign in to Visual Studio 2013 for it to run, without a possibility of running a disconnected/offline setup. Introducing a static activation key licensing option (which I just discovered) - you can obtain it from your MSDN subscription page. Just browse to where you would normally download the ISO, and then click on “Product Keys”. You will see a popup similar to the following:

SVN error - access to '.../!svn/act/{guid}' forbidden

Client: Tortoise SVN 1.7.13 x64 on Windows 7. Server: VisualSVN 2.1.3 Standard Edition. Issue After a brand new checkout, developer is getting this error on commit: Commit Failed (details below): Error Access to ‘/svn/…/!svn/act/{guid}’ forbidden Problem Letter case of the repository path specified for checkout must match actual repository path on the SVN server. Workaround Grant “Admin” permissions to the user, then commit works. This was not an option in our case.
