Collaborator http://smartbear.com/forums 8.1.8100 installation issues I&#39;m installing an older client due to the version of the server that my company is running. My computer is Windows 7, 64-bit. As the files begin extracting during the installation process, about a quarter of the way done I get a popup stating &quot;C:\Program Files\Collaborator Client\ui\plugins\com.ibm.icu_4.0.1.v20090415.jar Could not create this file. Shall I try again?&quot; Yes/No/Cancel.<br /> <br /> This started as a new Collaborator install, I initially tried v. 8.5, which is when I found out we&#39;re running an older server that requires 8.1.8100. I got that version &nbsp;from the SmartBear archives, which is when I first encountered the message above, I have run the install probably 15 times, mostly as administrator, deleted the install directory (almost) every time, rebooted &nbsp;a few times, shut down possibly conflicting applications (e.g. Test Architect repository), clicked &quot;Yes&quot; to try again 2,674 times (just kidding, but clicked 4-5 times on 4-5 different install attempts). Yes, I&#39;m using the 64 bit client installation file and there are no other versions of Collaborator either installed or running.<br /> <br /> Thanks for &nbsp;your suggestions/insights. http://smartbear.com/forums/f70/t96866/8-1-8100-installation-issues 11/10/2014 1:07:25 PM Rick Miller 7d5cce7f-ceac-4a8a-b2c6-8f8b48a34f01 RE: [CodeReviewer] Re-organising the SCM configurations on the Collaborator client GUUI Hi Sherif,<br /> Eventually got round to this again.<br /> <br /> Changing the first line on this doesn&#39;t seem to make much of a difference, at least not on my system.<br /> <br /> What I have found is that they are being added to the GUI in the order of the filenames in the profiles folder.<br /> so based on the &lt;xxxx&gt;.options values.<br /> <br /> I have tested on my system and renamed a couple of these - they still seem to work fine, and also now come up in the sequence I need.<br /> <br /> I guess they are just randomly generated names, not really meaning anything or linked to anything, so safe to rename?<br /> <br /> thanks<br /> http://smartbear.com/forums/f70/t96574/RE-CodeReviewer-Re-organising-the-SCM-config 11/10/2014 5:08:48 AM Francois Roux 8bbbf702-46db-4408-afa7-ef2eda26b3f7 RE: GIT - wrong &quot;checked in&quot; timestamp Oh sorry, I forgot to mention the GIT version: it is 1.9.4.<br /> regards,<br /> csaba http://smartbear.com/forums/f70/t95433/RE-GIT-wrong-quot;checked-in-quot;-timestam 11/10/2014 2:10:36 AM Csaba Gyorfi 4109cc1f-1a6c-4377-b69b-4db9f4891b7a RE: GIT - wrong &quot;checked in&quot; timestamp Hi,<br /> <br /> we are using the system v8.2.8202.<br /> In the meantime it turned out, that the GIT integration does not work at all. Maybe it is usable if you are reviewing only one commit, or only one diff, but there are severe errors when using it in a complete review scenario.<br /> Some of the issues:<br /> <br /> Fist upload:<br /> - wrong commit IDs and commit timestamp are displayed<br /> <br /> Additional uploads (e.g. uploading after correction)<br /> - the same commitIDs are displayed again and again which makes the history totally confusing<br /> - the &quot;overall accepted&quot; flag will not be removed when uploading a new version of a file<br /> - the &quot;last accepted version&quot; will not be stored, thus the &quot;Display Preference&quot; setting &quot;Current vs latest accepted&quot; does not work at all<br /> <br /> These errors makes the review totally unusable.<br /> <br /> When uploading the data I was trying both the &quot;addgitdiffs&quot; and &quot;addchangelist&quot; commands, with the same failures.<br /> Previously, we have used clearcase. We had also a lot of problem with it, but after the fixes smartbear provided, finally it worked seamless. Now we have changed to GIT, and the same story start again, but we have no more valid support.<br /> <br /> Did you ever test a complete post-commit review cycle with collaborator using GIT?<br /> <br /> I can procide all commands, screenshots, etc if it helps, but the failures are very easy to reproduce I think.<br /> <br /> thanks,<br /> csaba http://smartbear.com/forums/f70/t95433/RE-GIT-wrong-quot;checked-in-quot;-timestam 11/10/2014 2:08:57 AM Csaba Gyorfi 98e38eb6-1059-4eb3-b498-86addc1414fa RE: [CodeReviewer] [Archive] - Reduce content cache which inflates : which consequences on Code Reviews stored ? Hi,&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Collaborator stores two types of information:<br /> 1- Reviews information such as participants, comments, defects, description ... etc which are stored in the database.&nbsp;<br /> 2- The uploaded files &quot;Reviews Material&quot; which are located in the content cache directory. Its default location is &ldquo;&lt;INSTALL_DIR&gt;\Collaborator Server\tomcat\collaborator-content-cache&rdquo;.<br /> <br /> That being said, you will still be able to open the reviews after removing/archiving Collaborator content cache but you won&#39;t be able to view any files that have been removed.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> To archive anything there, simply move the older folders out of that directory. There isn&#39;t an easy way to tell if they&#39;re still in use, so your best option is to guess based on the modified date of each folder(arrange folders by date). If you happen to remove a file that&#39;s still in use, the end-user will receive a message stating that the file has been archived, along with its reference number - the message will be (Content for version uncontrolled is not available - it was archived by your administrator.(Content MD5: 7562e28ba19...) for example). You&#39;d then need to copy that back to the content cache to 75 then 62 then e2.<br /> <br /> Hope this help you,&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Note: we strongly recommend having a full backup before you apply any changes.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Feel free to contact us at support@smartbear.com&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Best,&nbsp;<br /> <br /> http://smartbear.com/forums/f71/t96731/RE-CodeReviewer-Archive-Reduce-content-c 11/7/2014 12:45:03 PM Sherif Sallam 901a1639-8712-41d3-a126-0733128f0d4a RE: [CodeReviewer] Passwords stored in opentext Hi Karl,&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Thank you for the post.
