So you’ve just installed Mercurial on Windows. You want to do an SVN import into a new Mercurial repository, so you’re looking to switch on the
hg convert extension. You might be looking through this documentation looking for the correct configuration file.
Let me save you some time!
I found the correct file was under the Mercurial / TortoiseHg install:
Look for the block called
[extensions] and remove the semi-colon on from the the convert extension. So the file should look like so:
[extensions] ; extensions shipped with Mercurial by default ; ;acl = ;bugzilla = ;children = ;churn = ; Warning: the color extension is not recommended for Windows ;color = convert = ;extdiff = ;eol =
hg convert and you’re away.
