After upgrading to TortoiseSVN 1.5.3 (from 1.4.5), when I
right click on any folder in Windows Explorer, I receive an
exception dialog box. When I click the cancel button the
dialog box reappears and I repeat this process four
additional times until the exception dialog box disappears
and Windows Explorer exits.
I uninstalled 1.5.3, restarted my PC, opened Windows
Explorer and could then right click any folder or file and
get the normal Windows pop-up menu (expand, file finder,
cut, copy, etc.). I then reinstalled 1.5.3 and retested. My
results were the same as before getting an exception box
when right-clicking a folder.
I again uninstalled 1.5.3, restarted my PC, reinstalled 1.4.5,
restarted my PC, and opened Windows Explorer. Right
clicking on any folder now works normally.
I have had to get back to real work and further debugging
will need to wait. One idea is to incrementally update
toward 1.5.3 and determine which version causes this
My OS is Windows XP Pro w/SP2.
