Basic Information

Refer to Synchronized Projects User Guide for basic information.

The July 2011 PTP user meeting user-call recording includes a live demonstration of how to setup and configure a synchronized project. (Note: convert to full-screen viewing via the green square in the lower right corner of the screen to be able to read the contents of the demo screens.)

Known Issues

  • There is no wizard to convert existing remote projects to synchronized projects.
  • There are some potential pitfalls when configuring projects
    • Users should avoid changing configurations inside the new project wizard, as this will cause errors. Instead, add and change configurations after project creation.
    • The Workspace configuration only appears after the project is created.
    • The tool chain selected during creation is used for both the local machine and remote machine. Users need to adjust this after project creation.
    • For remote configurations, only the "Sync Builder" works, although other options are available (Project -> Properties -> C/C++ Build -> Tool Chain Editor). The "Sync Builder" is set as the default.
    • Attempting to change multiple configurations does not work correctly.


I want to use CVS (or another version control system) together with synchronization. How do I setup a synchronized project and download my files from CVS?

  1. Create an empty Synchronized project
  2. Right-click on the project: 'Team' -> 'Share Project'
  3. Configure the repository
  4. Do not launch the Commit wizard (last page of wizard)
  5. Right-click on the project: 'Team' -> 'Update' to download all files. The files will automatically be synchronized to the remote host.

Change Log

Version 5.0.2

  • Add sync context menu bug 345673.
  • Add wizard to convert local C/C++ or Fortran projects to synchronized projects.
  • Support files with odd characters bug 354893, with the exception of newline characters bug 355270.
  • Add ability to turn off error messages bug 355526.
  • Fix bug 356633: Failure to add files to repository if a .gitignore file is present.

Version 5.0.1

  • Use separate Git directory (.ptp-sync instead of .git) for sync'ing so that it does not interfere with user's Git repository.
  • Sync empty directories.
  • Prevent users from modifying the synchronization properties of the Workspace configuration.
  • Fix bug 349372: Build fails if empty environment variables are present.
  • Support managed project types.
  • Add Fortran synchronization wizard.
  • Do not sync if only a file's markers have changed (prevents sync'ing during file editing if code analysis is turned on).
