In Topic: Cannot create the Personal Server

29 November 2019 - 08:30 AM

Hello. Can anybody with the valid Perforce support address them with the issue? Does the Perforce personal server work at all on Windows?
And anybody who use the Perforce personal server regularly on Windows, could you, please, drop a line here about your experience? I still believe I am the only Perforce Windows user in the world but there is a chance that I just press the wrong buttons.
Thank you in advance.

Good. Thank you. You were very helpful.

Thanks. That is what I was afraid of. Your Perforce and workspaces are file oriented and your P4VS is Microsoft Visual Studio solution oriented. So instead of monitoring the file system and be able to handle virtually any text editor with very simple hooks you rely on a third party that eventually may stop working (just the case we have). Is there a chance you rethink your approach and make something like P4V or P4VS monitor the file system and use the IDE like an auxiliary helper? The Visual Studio projects/solutions go from bad to worse with each release. At least projects/solutions for Linux builds still do not work normally after almost a year of development while CMake Visual Studio projects just do their job. So, rethinking the P4VS concept may appear to be a good investment.

Hi. I do not see your screenshots and do not understand what can you do if you cannot reproduce the issues. But nevertheless here are mine screenshots. The support@perforce does not accept mails from unlicensed users anymore. You were thinking about to allow mails with security issues but I do not know what the process ended up with. The versions of Visual Studio are irrelevant because the things have been broken for very long time now. I have 16.2.2 and 16.3.0 Preview 2.0 now. The versions of P4VS you know. If you prefer email, please, feel free to address me by my registration email.
The problem may be because you have troubles with enlarged fonts. And you do because your Submit dialog uses different font settings (the size is different and too small) and this bothers me much more.
I also reported earlier that your forum and site does not work normally with Windows LTSB systems. These systems (including Windows Server 2019) still use IE 11 and does not allow installing the Edge. Probably, your Windows revenues do not pay anymore.

Hi. Thanks, it works now.
Are there any chances that the Perforce will fix the defects in how the P4VS displays its interface? There are lots of them and here is one example. If you select a changelist in submitted changelist pane and make the pane to lose focus (click the editor, for example) the name of the selected changelist disappears (there is a hole in the list). I do understand the behavior is very strange and is impossible not to notice but nevertheless. I have two monitors of different sizes. The RDP introduces another problem – the file names in at least the Pending pane (probably, it affects the other panes too) are unreadable (they are drawn in a distortion manner) until I click them with the mouse and they are redrawn. RDP is multimonitored on the same two displays of the different size.
