RE: svn-0.14.0-r2667-setup.exe has show stopper bug in it PATH corrupted on Win XP/W2K/NT systems

I got a message from Patrik Husfloen confirming the PATH got "hosed".

I just rerun the install and document what I see...

1. Uninstall did not remove the c:\program files\subversion from the PATH.
2. I manually remove the c:\program files\subversion from the PATH
4. Install svn-0.14.0-r2667-setup.exe
5. PATH is REG_SZ and contains:
   C:\Python22\.;C:\Python21\;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Subversion
6. Start a new CMD
7. typeing notepad gets
   'notepad' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
   operable program or batch file.
8. PATH command lists

8. Now I repair PATH back to REG_EXPAND_SZ (you have to edit it via the My COmputer/Properties
   Advanced tab, Environment Variables Button, then make a edit to PATH in SYstem variables.
   (add a space and delete it), Click OK a couple of times and the system notices the PATH change.)

I suggest that you put up a kit that does not run svnpath at all until we have a fix.
You could use the max_version stuff to exclude XP from the run.

As well why not add a note to the files area on tigris.org that warns users that the install
is bad on XP.

Yes you are right requireing VB runtime is bad news for a kit. Why not code in C/C++ rather then
Pascal then more people could build it and help with code modifications?
