Disable Source Control in Ranorex Studio

Post by Bilmich1 » Tue Aug 14, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello everyone,

I tried searching in the documentation and on this forum but could not find the answer to this.
How do you completely disable source control from within Ranorex Studio?
I did not find an option to disable it completely, and if I right click on the solution in the Projects View, I have the source control (Git in my case) command's available, but I do not have a way to disable it.
My current version is 8.2.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Michael,

For git, just delete the ".git" folder next to the folder of the solution and re-open the solution.
Does this help?

Please explain in more detail what your goal is.

I would highly recommend NOT deleting the .git file as this will remove your local solution from git source control.

If you want to remove the Git INTEGRATION from Ranorex itself, and not remove your solution from Git, you just need to uninstall TortoiseGit, as that is the only integration that Ranorex has for Git (unless something has changed in the last few months when I haven't been using Ranorex 8) ).
Shortcuts usually aren't...
