Is there a working standalone Windows version?

Asked by Dr Paul Gorman on 2009-07-06

I am evaluating using a distributed version control and Bazaar has been given very favourable reviews.

To that end I an trying to put an existing Java projects under local Bazaar control and then try the same with a remote repository.
But not matter what I do with Bazaar it does not want to work; whether I use the command-line interface or the Tortoise interface I get permission denied messages.

bzr: ERROR: Permission denied: "C:/repositories/Claims/mainline/.bzr/branch-lock/releasing.schn4kvtpp6su2we0r91.tmp": [Error 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: u'C:/repositories/Claims/mainline/.bzr/branch-lock/releasing.schn4kvtpp6su2we0r91.tmp'

Tortoise: bzr: ERROR: Permission denied: "C:/repositories/Claims/mainline/.bzr/branch-lock/releasing.rsctja74gxv00iamje40.tmp": [Error 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: u'C:/repositories/Claims/mainline/.bzr/branch-lock/releasing.rsctja74gxv00iamje40.tmp'.

So is there a standalone installer version that works? Judging by the survey 60% of users are on Windows so it must be working for someone. Of course it could just be me.

Hi,

Yes, there is a windows installer that works for many people.

I believe this is the error you reported in bug 394976.

I haven't heard of anyone else encountering that problem, therefore I suspect there's some problem specific to your environment that's either interfering with bzr or provoking a bug in bzr. We will work with you to identify what that is and how to remedy it, but because nobody else has been able to reproduce it as far as I know, we need some more data from you.

This also could be that the directory was left in a locked state (for
whatever reason).

I don't know if TBZR exposes it, but doing "bzr break-lock" in that
directory may get things working again for you.
