Hello, I tried to use bin/idea.sh with Cygwin to generate project files for IDEA IntelliJ Community .
The project file generation seems to work and outputs the .idea - folder with lots of xml files in it .
However , when opening the project from IDEA, it fails with a message :
VCS root configuration problems -
The directory \cygdrive\C\hg\open\jdk\jdk6 is registered as a hg4idea root but no hg4idea repositories were found there .
Could it be that the Cygwin-paths in the generated xml-files confuse the IDEA intelliJ IDE ?
Has anybody ever used it successfully with Cygwin/ Windows ?
( or with some other UNIX shell/toolset for Windows) ?
Best regards, Matthias
