Ok, you are right.

As progDlg.DoModal() CAN return any value defined, something as #define
AUTO_TSVN_SUCCESS (something) and #define AUTO_TSVN_FAILED (something)
will be great.

Humm.. maybe right but really I need a special tool.

So, I have build something as I want to do. Now as it no use TSVN any
more, maybe is place is not is this maillist ( sorry ) but I need some
advices about.
As said, is an Win32 Application Tray, just checking local copies ( get
URL and revision ) and try to get server side revision and compare.

If revision are differents, it pop a message. It need Subversion
installed, and in the PATH env. ( as I can not use TSVN automation
without any returns values )

Please , if anybody have time for test my very first version, will be great.

URL for download is http://www.keosystems.com/dev/SubversionTray/

Please is a beta, do not distribute it.

Regards,
Olivier.
