I hope someone can help me with this. It is likely just a simple user configuration problem.
My perforce server is running on Windows 7. It works and functions as intended.
I was able to successfully connect to the perforce server using IntelliJ 9.0.1 settings (The "test connection" button returns success, when I use my p4 username "tigris", doesn't connect when I change it to any other username -- which is expected behavior. So the connection works.)
Now everything works. Except one thing. When I start to type into the file from IntelliJ, the normal "Clear Read-only" Status window pops up asking to make a choice between:
1. Using file system
2. Using version control integration (this is of course the one I need)
However, when I choose 2., I get a second popup:
"Perforce is unavailable. Do you want to clear read-only file attribute using file system?"
No, I don't. I want it to be sent into perforce default change list, of course.
Can Anyone help? Below is the screenshot of what this looks like:
