Tried that... it doesnt seem to take. We install Tortoise using Run As, since
users do not have local admin rights. The added reg key works for the admin
who installed the program via Run As, but when the user logs on, the added key
is not present. I've also tried using ALLUSERS=1 thinking that may have made
the difference, unfortunately not.

What is strange however, there are other reg keys within the HKCU hive that
show up under the installer's account, that do not show up when the user logs
on. The user only has CheckNewerWeek & CurrentVersion values in the
HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN key, while the installer has those two plus a few
more: TortoiseIDiff, TortoiseMerge, TortoiseSVN.

Moreso, if you delete the Tortoise key from HKCU in either the installer's
account or the user's it will be rebuilt with the lesser of the two value sets
(just the two above values and not the others).

Any ideas? Am I totally off the track? :)
