Thank you for trying! I got a similar report from another person.
So it seems that the tricky part (i.e. explorer integration) works
but the TortoiseProc.exe does not start. Probably, some DLL is missing.

Since all my Win64 boxes got VS.NET2005 installed, I cannot reproduce
missing DLLs. It would be very helpful if someone could use Depends.EXE
to check what TortoiseProc.exe is missing. You may even start it
directly from the command line and hope Windows will report what DLL
is missing. For instance, is there a dgbhelp.dll on your system?
Its 32 bit variant is shipped with TSVN32 but it claims to be part
of Windows - so I didn't include it into the ZIP file.

Also, try to start TortoiseBlame.EXE and TortoiseMerge.EXE directly.
This might help to narrow the range of potentially missing files.
Is TSVNCache.EXE running as a 64 bit process (see the process list
in your TaskManager)?

As a workaround (haven't tried that one yet), remove the 64 bit EXE
and add the folder with the 32 bit variant to your path. This might
work since the Explorer-plugin just calls the EXE via command line
and hence, program lookup rules should apply.

O.k. I will test whether 32 bit and 64 bit variants should work
simultaneously (the registry reflector may be a problem here).

"Just" use the command line to rename TortoiseSVN.DLL to something
different and re-start your explorer(s) (log-off). There is no need
to remove the registry settings.

Thank you for your feedback!
I am convinced that we will get TSVN running with 64 bits.
