I'm working on it now. Paths can also be found in the usual place
HKLM/SOFTWARE/vendor/product/blabla and also other places. I will use the
registry key you describe for an "apache -k stop|uninstall|install|
start" session and install the mod_dav_svn and mod_authz_svn.

It seem to be necessary to install libdb40.dll into Apache\bin or
Apache\modules folder on Win 2000 too.
Why only Win 2000 and not NT4 and XP, can someone tell me about this?

I'm not 100% sure that I understand you. Do you mean why I have not done
this earlier? If so, the reason is lack of time and no wishes about it
(strange),it has been on my ToDo list for a long time.

Another strange thing is that no one have noticed (or mentioned) that the
Berkeley dll can't be upgraded when Apache are running with mod_dav_svn.
So I have not stressed this before now (thank God that the Berkeley
version have been the same all the time).
I would have done this earlier if the standard berkeley was upgraded from
4.0.14 to 4.1.25.

For now, the installer will only work with the standard Apache binary
installer download.

Well, when we talk about this, how many people are using Subversion
installed with the installer? I wish that I knew how many downloads the
installer have.
If I count some developers and see the problems the installer have on
this list, then I will say that approx. 10-15 people are using it. Two
are using XP (I'm one of them), three Win9x (I'm two of them with 95 and
98 for testing) and one NT4 (me, for testing purposes). The rest are
using Windows 2000. ;-)
I really start to wonder if it's any idea at all to make a windows
installer at all when I look at the overwhelming feedback on the list
everytime a new version come out or when I ask for feedback. On the
other hand, this lack of feedback can also mean that everything mostly
works _very_good_ .
