Re: Missing Icon Overlays

Thank you, Stefan. Unfortunately ...

I checked before uninstall - ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers had 1TortoiseSVN
through 7TortoiseSVN and Offline Files. After uninstall and reboot, only
Offline Files remained. After re-install TSVN, I have 1TortoiseSVN through
7TortoiseSVN again plus Offline Files. But no icon overlays in the Windoze

The values associated with the keys appear valid (referring to an
InProcSserver32 key for the installed tortoisesvn.dll
