Use "_svn" directories instead of ".svn" directories so that LabVIEW doesn't index the directories when building up palettes.

How to use _svn directories

Note: As of version 1.4.0 and later, the setting below is no longer available via TortoiseSVN >> Settings. However, an alternative method, (also known as the SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK) is described in TortoiseSVN's release notes located here.

  1. Open Windows explorer.
  2. Right click on a directory and select "TortoiseSVN...Settings" from the pop-up menu.
  3. On the "General" page in the "Settings - Tortoise SVN" dialog check the "Use '_svn' instead of '.svn' directories" box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. TortoiseSVN will prompt you to restart the computer.
