msi can be installed separately, I even think that you have to install
it separately for Win2k. But don't get too excited: to install msi 3.0,
you must have all the service packs installed (maybe SP3 is enough, but
SP3 definitely isn't - I've tried with some virtual PCs).
But there's no exe installer for TSVN, we only provide the msi. (The
exe's we provide are for the language packs only).

If you did that, then you wouldn't get a message telling you to install
SP4 from the msi. So at least *some* hotfixes must be missing.

It would be best if you knock the door to your IT department down and
tell them to do their job. There is absolutely no reason to not install
SP4. I can understand if a company doesn't install an SP immediately
after it's been released, but SP4 is not new anymore. So they had more
than enough time to check and test it.
And even if there are some apps which don't work correctly with SP4,
they should update those apps too - if those apps are commercial, then
they can request a version which works correctly, after all, isn't that
the only argument certain companies use against open source?
