[quote=“DavidEGrayson”]If you installed the Wixel SDK using the Wixel Development Bundle, then you will have the version that is tagged as “release/installer_110415” in our git repository. This version is from April 15th, 2011.
Please see the “Downloading the Wixel SDK itself” section in the Wixel SDK documentation for more info about how to get the latest version:
I’m a pretty experienced windows programmer and long-time TortoiseSVN user, but I’m getting completely lost in all the GIT wilderness. I dl’d and installed TortoiseGit, but now almost everything I do (including attempting to launch
TortoiseGit’s Help function) is met with a dialog that gives me three options - Set MsysGitpath, Goto Website, and Abort. I have found myself spending hours and hours trying to understand Git, MsysGit, TortoiseGit when all I wanted to do originally was to make sure I was dealing with an up-to-date version of the wixel application source code! And yes, I have been to the Git website and read through much of the basic documentation, and no, I cannot for the life of me figure out why there has to be yet another VCS to be learned. I now have SourceSafe and Tortoise SVN on my system, and I am apparently soon to be blessed with Git/TortoiseGit as well - whoopee! And this is AFTER having taken all the time to set up a compilation/edit/load environment in the first place! I suppose this could be less clear and more cumbersome, but I’m at a loss to figure out how!
I don’t suppose you could explain, in a very basic way, the steps to be taken to wind up with a functioning Git-based VCS on my system, one that doesn’t take a week of hard labor to set up? For instance, something like the following (I have no idea if this is correct, but…)
Configure Git - does it require any configuration?
Install TortoiseGit (does TortoiseGit require a pre-installed Git or does it/will it install everything it needs?)
And if you are reading this and thinking “well, crap - here I am wasting my time explaining Git once again when I really want to be working on the next Wixel version”, then you can understand how frustrating it is to me to want to get working on my Wixel-based project but instead being up to my rear in alligitors!
