Problem:

Is there an alternative to the deprecated "BinaryFileExt" option for marking StarTeam files as binary?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2008R2
  • Product Component: Client
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows

In previous StarTeam releases it was possible to enter an option "BinaryFileExt" in the StarTeam server configuration file, specifying the extensions of any file types to be considered binary by the StarTeam server. This option has been deprecated as of StarTeam 2008.

An alternative exists however in the StarTeam 2009 release client due for release in Q2 2009. During the check-in process,

  1. Click the Advanced button in the check-in dialog.


  2. Check "Set file type"
  3. Select "Binary"
  4. Click OK
  5. Click OK to check in the file(s)

The file(s) will now be flagged as binary in StarTeam.
