CCRC – where is the view information?

Filed under: Source Control — idlesun @ 7:43 pm

One of my colleagues at work had gotten hard disk booting failure. Luckily, the HDD was attached to other PC and readable. The issue was that there were CCRC views with checked out files. The files couldn’t be checked in or undone unless the views were properly recovered. However, when all the CCRC and CCRC views  were copied over to newly built PC, the views were not visible in CCRC. CCRC doesn’t recognize the local CCRC views folders even though everything was copied to the exact same location as before.

The key to resolving this issue is to find out where the view information is stored locally on PC. Not in Windows registry. Not in the CCRC program folder. It is in the ‘.ccase_wvreg‘ file in user home folder. Once you find and open it in a text editor, you will get pretty good idea.

For more detail on .ccase_wvreg file, see About the CCRC .ccase_wvreg file.
