Well, you definitely have some policies activated:

MSI (s) (18:BC) [22:36:46:043]: SOFTWARE RESTRICTION POLICY: Verifying
package --> 'C:\Users\matsj\Desktop\TortoiseSVN-1.4.4.9706-win32-svn-1.4.4.msi'
against software restriction policy
MSI (s) (18:BC) [22:36:46:043]: Note: 1: 2262 2: DigitalSignature 3:
-2147287038
MSI (s) (18:BC) [22:36:46:043]: SOFTWARE RESTRICTION POLICY:
C:\Users\matsj\Desktop\TortoiseSVN-1.4.4.9706-win32-svn-1.4.4.msi is
not digitally signed
MSI (s) (18:BC) [22:36:46:045]: SOFTWARE RESTRICTION POLICY:
C:\Users\matsj\Desktop\TortoiseSVN-1.4.4.9706-win32-svn-1.4.4.msi is
permitted to run at the 'unrestricted' authorization level.

one that prevents installers which aren't digitally signed from being
run with elevated privileges - and that's required to install TSVN.

A wild guess: do you have UAC disabled? In that case, installation
will fail because UAD can't ask you to elevate the privileges:

MSI (s) (18:BC) [22:36:46:063]: MSI_LUA: Elevation required to install
product, will prompt for credentials
MSI (s) (18:BC) [22:36:46:065]: MSI_LUA: Credential Request return = 0x80070005
This installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system
administrator.

Stefan
