I use P4V as a Perforce client. I updated to 2009.1 to get some major bug fixes, and it seems they removed the ability to connect to older clients. I do work for a few clients, and 5/6 depots I have to work with are new, but one is older (2002.2 I think). Does this mean that not only I can't get any more bug fixes because 1 of 6 servers is old, but now I'm completely locked out of that server since the older P4V clients are no longer online?

I know the 2007.x version I used before works with the old servers, but I can't find it online. Please tell me I'm not SOL... The Visual Studio integration is part of the P4V package, not the P4Win package, so if something isn't fixed I might never have VS support for P4 again. Help :(

Have you contacted support at Perforce? I haven't used it in a while but when we were using Perforce support was always excellent. – ChrisF Oct 9 '09 at 8:19

You can find previous perforce releases at the following url:

You do not need to install P4V to get the Visual Studio plugin. It's included with P4V, yes, but you can certainly install it separately:

P4SCC is what does the Visual Studio integration.

If you follow the download link, you'll see it's labeled "Included in the P4V Installer" and the download is p4vinst.exe (P4V). Either way, it doesn't address the fact that they removed support for their servers from the clients. – Sam Harwell Sep 25 '09 at 4:23
