Transfer P4V bookmarks manually

TASK

How can I transfer my P4V bookmarks from one machine to another?

SOLUTION

In P4V 2008.1 and later, bookmarks are saved in:

/.p4qt/xxxxClients/bookmarks.xml
Note that xxxx is a number defined in “.p4qt/connectionmap.xml” for a specific connection to the server.

Currently, there is no built-in method to transfer bookmarks from one machine to another. A possible workaround is to:

Identify the xxxx number in “connectionmap.xml” on the source client machine, and the xxxx number in “connectionmap.xml” on the target client machine.
Then, copy the “bookmarks.xml” file from the source machine to the corresponding “.p4qt/xxxxClients/” folder on the target machine.

Implementing Tortoise SVN and Sub-version

To setup the SVN server:

Download the SVN server from http://www.visualsvn.com/server/

If you want a tight integration with Visual Studio use their Visual SVN client for $50. Which is worth every penny as it gives you an excellent integration with studio similar to source safe/team system.

Free sub-version client (Tortoise SVN):

You can download tortoise SVN from : http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/

Once tortoise SVN is installed it integrates to windows shell. Use the settings option to set the server details, exclusion file and folder list.

Then right click and use the checkout option to get the files from the server.

To get a latest version use UPDATE

Submit changes to server use COMMIT
