HOWTO make Overlays work on Windows 2003 Terminal Server

As stated on the FAQ ( http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/node/158 ) if you
install TortoiseSVN on a Terminal Server it will work fine excepted that only
one user will get the overlay icons.
This is apparently related to the TSNCache.exe process which is launched as you
browse the content of a directory configured with SVN content: TSVNcache.exe is
ran as a process belonging to the active user. All other user do not have the
right to share this process.

There seem to be 2 solutions :
1 - grant admin access to all users (up to you to decide if that is suitable)
2 - run the process as a service under a system level account

We went for solution 2 using a dedicated program (
http://www.application-as-service.com/ ). You just need to add the program with
default parameters (do not specify any accoount, it will use a LocalSystem
account wihich is fine. It runs fine: all user can see the overlay icons.

Please note that I am not a specialist, I am just sharing our experience since
we couldn't HOWTO information on this matter. Your mileage may vary.

Regards,

Ronan
