Thanks very much.
Exactly what I was after.

That's possibly because the user mailing list was only split away from the dev mailing list this week. There appear to be only 52 mails on this list.

We dropped 95/98/ME/NT support with the 1.2.0 release. There are significant API differences between NT4 and newer Windows versions, and it was getting harder and harder to paper over the cracks. Also, none of the developers uses NT, so debugging was almost impossible.

V1.1.7 was the last release that supported NT. It's available from the download page via the archive of older versions. Get it here:

http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/files/documents/406/22868/TortoiseSVN-1.1.7-UNICODE_svn-1.1.4.msi

I will update the download page to make that a bit clearer.

You can use the latest version of SVN with older versions of TSVN (see compatibility again).
