I see this is your first post. Have you spoken with anyone here at SourceGear about these problems? If you'd like to have a constructive conversation, we are certainly willing to help.

Vault scalability has steadily improved with each release. What version are you using?

There is a section of your client log file I would like to see. Does your client log file have lines which look like the following? Before: Execute (maybe some other stuff) After: Execute (maybe some other stuff) Before: UpdateKnownChanges_All (maybe some other stuff) After: UpdateKnownChanges_All N...

We really need to provide a feature to manage the disk space used by those cache files. I agree that they can't just accumulate forever. I still think it is probably safe to delete them, but I also wouldn't be shocked if we discovered that doing so causes some kind of a problem. Different people can...

First, is the baseline related to the local cache files that Vault retrieves? If so, then what happens if those cache files are deleted while I've got some code files checked out? Vault client does keep cached copies of specific versions of files, including the baseline. I doubt it is a good idea t...

When you get a file from the repository to your local machine, Vault remembers which version you retrieved, and it keeps track of whether you have edited the file or not. If you have edited your local copy of the file and there is not a new version of that file on the server, then the status of your...

The Pending Change Set pane shows this.

I think the Status Search pane can do this also.

Both are in the tabbed area in the bottom portion of the main window for the GUI client.

Here is some information:

It's dated, but still valid I believe.

Yes, Vault supports "optimistic locking", aka "edit-merge-commit":

This still looks very much like ASP.NET is simply not configured properly on your machine. If ASP.NET doesn't work, then Vault won't work.

Are any other ASP.NET apps working properly on that machine?

Re: Diffmerge

I am currently evaluating Vault and am frustrated that I cannot perform a text search within the DiffMerge interface. I don't know whether this has been an omission made for technical reasons (if so, they aren't particularly obvious to me). VSS supports a text search in its equivalent interface and...

This is being considered for 4.0, but I can't promise it.

How would you want it to work? I assume you would simply expect Vault to queue the message and retry it later? Just checking.

I don't have the Vault source code handy to verify this right now, but here's how I *think* this works: There are three files in play: 1. The target file. 2. The beginning version of the origin file. 3. The ending version of the origin file. For a normal text file, automerge takes the differences be...

1. In general, you'll need to deal with binary files manually. The merge branches wizard can't really offer much help. 2. Regarding your second problem, if I understand correctly, yes, that's how Vault is supposed to work. Resolve merge status doesn't do anything to the files. It merely tells Vault ...

Offhand I would say that handling these situations correctly would require Vault to know the encoding of the file. Vault currently knows if the file is text or binary, but if the file is text, it does not have an attribute to specify the encoding. Once the file has been read into memory as string da...

We haven't announced anything about the Vault 4.0 feature set.

We are not yet announcing much about Vault 4.0 yet. Some part of the plan are still in flux. I definitely can't give a date yet.

However, I can say this: The "Find in Files" feature is planned for 4.0.
