If you don't have ADMIN rights while installing TSVN, it is only
installed for the current user. I don't know what user you are if you're
connected via remote desktop. But I guess you're definitely not an
ADMIN. So it won't show up for local users after installation.

I think with Remote Desktop, you're actually a different user each time
you connect (or as long as the 'invitation' to connect is valid). But
that's just a guess.
