Does someone know about good Subversion client plug-in for InstallShield?

Suppose I use TortoiseSVN client at our setups preparing PC.
I’m interesting to know where and how to control multiple project builds.

Installshiled project, script directory files and/or corresponding Data directory tree with files changes build by build.
Data directory tree for our projects content from 100 to 1.1 GB of binary and text files.

I see the following options:

- Installshiled project file, script directory together with corresponding
Data directory tree save in Subversion repository;
- Installshiled project file and script directory save in Subversion repository.
Data directory tree versions save on file server because of large data size;
- Don’t use source control for setup projects.

I appreciate your answer

I use both Subversion & InstallShield, but I don't know of any SVN plug-ins for IS. Although honestly you don't really need them. Just make sure you're using the TortoiseSVN client for the front end.

Also, you don't normally store the build data in source control. Not only due to its size, but because you can always regenerate it from the source. Therefore, I would recommend just keeping your IS project files in source control.

Hope that helps clarify things.
