Re: Windows 'Access denied' errors

Hello D.J.,

Good (or bad) news. I caught the error in the act.

Here is what the GPF message said (translated from French):
Title: "svn.exe - Application error"

"An exception unknown software exception (0xc00000fd) occured in the
application at address 0x00407db3.

Click OK to stop the program.
Click cancel to debug it."

I am using Win 2K SP4, Subversion 0.30.0, Apache 2.0.47 over ra_dav
(https). I unfortunately cannot debug the program as I do not have a
development environment here.

The steps that led to the error:
Moved and replaced a few files (GIF files that were renamed/converted to
Set the svn:mime-type on the files to image/png
Changed a few XML files to point to the new names

K:\leadmanagement>svn commit
Sending src\xdocs\dblayout.xml
Deleting src\xdocs\editversionnum.gif
Adding (bin) src\xdocs\simpledblayout.png
Transmitting file data .........svn: A problem occurred; see later errors
for details
svn: Commit succeeded, but other errors follow:


As you can see, I do not have access to the other errors. SVN seems to
crash before, so it does not have time to tell me what's going on. I
have had this error three or four times now.

Currently, I have disabled the COM+ and System notification services. I
have Norton Anti-Virus running in the background. Version 9.05.15 (NAV
2003). Maybe I should try with NAV off ?

If I have forgotten something, tell me and I'll give you as much as I

Hope that helps,
