The following is a step-by-step guide detailing the recommended installation of Etal under SVN source control.

Download and Install Tortoise SVN

The recommended approach to installing Etal uses Tortoise SVN source control software. Before downloading Etal itself, you must first install SVN. Click this link to visit Tortoise SVN's download page. Follow their installation instructions to complete this step.

Note: Make sure you download the correct version. If you're on a 64-bit version of Windows, you need the 64-bit version. Same goes for 32-bit. If you aren't sure, right click "My Computer" and look at the properties. It should say under "system type."

Markings On Folders

You'll notice some new icon overlays on your folders & files. These are TortoiseSVN's way of marking the files, letting you know their "status" since download.

  • Green check marks are files & folders that are "normal", those which haven't been changed since you downloaded them.
  • Red exclamation marks are files / directories you've changed "modified".
  • Blue plus marks are files that aren't included in the download(You or bot added it)

Both of these you shouldn't worry about. Below is a list from TortoiseSVN.
