Why would you install such an ancient version?

That means you not only installed an ancient version but also an
unsupported one (the one with the ASP hack).

Just some pointers where you could get more info.

I don't have a new laptop (yet), but I have a Vista partition on my old
laptop (very, very slow, but it works to test some Vista specific
problems with TSVN). One thing I noticed is that if I try accessing a
working copy from another partition (i.e., my XP partition), it wouldn't
work - always getting "access denied" errors.
One way to solve this:
* select the folder
* right-click, choose "properties"
* go to the access rights (don't know the exact way to get there - I
don't want to reboot into Vista just to find out)
* add your Vista username as users who are allowed to access
(read/write/change/...) the folder.
* apply the changes recursively
* have a cup of coffe or two - this can take a while

But the best way (and I might even say faster way) is to get a fresh
